— Hot Sauce 

HOT SAUCE is a question and answer 
toluinn with NSU's president, Dr. Rene 
Bienvenu. If you have a question or a 
imminent about anything concerning 
Northwestern, just write it down and deliver 
it to the CURRENT SAUCE office in room 
225 of Keyser Hall, and we'll pass it aling to 
Dr. Rienv-snu. 

Dr. Bienvenu: How would one go about being selected 
a host for one or more of the new freshmen who will 
here for the new 'Inside View' program? Why is it 
at always a select few are chosen to be hosts to 
iitores instead of NSU students as a whole being 
llowed to work?

I Increases 

Summer Fun 

Bill Thomas and two unidentified students found t*ie best place to play 
basketball on a hot summer day-in the pool at the NSU recreation 
complex. According to Rec Complex Director Bill Hochstetler, many 
people are not only enjoying the Olympic size pool, but are also using 
the newly completed tennis courts and Pro Shop. The Complex is open 
on Sunday, Tuesday ,-Friday from 1 to 7 p.m., and on Saturday frm 12 
to 7 p.m. For more information on the Rec. Coreplex, call 352-9273.

Inside View student 
counselors named 

Northwestern's current summer 
semester enrollment of 3,520 is an in- 
crease of 89 students over the 1978 
summer term registration figure of 3,431. 

NSU registrar Walter P.Ledet said 
Northwestern's student credit hour 
production of 22,464 this summer 
represents an increase of 405 over the 
summer of 1978 and is important, because 
our state funding formula is based on 
student credit hours. 

Enrolled at Northwestern this summer 
are 2,130 women and 1,390 men. There 
are 2,268 students registered in un- 
dergraduate programs, and the Graduate 
school enrollment is 1 ,252. 

Ledet said enrollment in the Graduate 
School increased by some 150 students 
this year over 1978 primarily because os 
some new programs which provide state 
payment of tuition for teachers who 
choose to continue their education. 

The Northwestern registrar said NSU's 
summer enrollment will go even higher 
later in the summer semester as students 
register for specialized workshops, short 
courses, and other special programs. 

Northwestern President Rene J. 
Bienvenu said, "I am extremely pleased 
with the summer enrollment figures 
showing an increase in registration when 
other colleges and universities nationwide 
are experiencing declining enrollments. 

The enrollment figure includes all of 

the participants in the many workshops, 
short courses and special programs of- 
fered by the University. It does not in- 
clude the large number of high school 
students on campus for various activities 
such as the Northwestern National 
Cheerleading Association Cheerleading 
Clinic and the NSU Football Camp. 

Summer enrollment at Northwestern 
reached a peak in 1975 when some 3,885 
students enrolled. There were 2,702 
undergraduates in school that summer 
and 1,093 persons in the NSU Graduate 
School Program. 

Of the total enrollment in 1975, 2,232 
were women, and 1 ,653 were men. 

A year earlier, in 1974, there were 3,705 
students registered. During a 10-year 
period from 1965 to 1975, the summer 
term enrollment climbed by more than 
1,100 students, an increased by 500 in the 
1970-1975 period. 

The summer enrollment for 1974 was a 
drastic turnaround from 1973, when 
2,708 students registered. Northwestern 
was considered in a crisis situation by 
many, since the total underclass 
enrollment of NSU had fallen by almost 
18 per cent in the 1970-1973 period. 

Mentioned as possible explanations for 
the drop in enrollment in 1973 were the 
establishment of a four-year college in 
Shreveport (LSU-S) and the reduction of 
Federal Financial Aid programs by 

Nine student leaders at Northwestern 
State University have been selected to 
serve as counselors during the three 
sessions of NSU's Inside View program 
for freshmen entering the university for 
the first time. 

The student counselors, who are called 
"Insiders," will be Diane Adams, junior, 
secretarial administration major from 
Alexandria; Ginger Elaine Gates, senior, 
psychology, Natchitoches; Alicia K. 
Haynes, sophomore, dietetics, Shon- 
galoo; Stephen Edward Matis, 
sophomore, pre-pharmacy, Natchitoches; 
Mairus T. McFarland, junior, 
mathematics and biology education, 
Many; Sheri AnnShaw, junior, physical 
education, Natchitoches; Terri Lynn 
Shaw, junior, business administration, 
Natchitoches; Kristy Towry, sophomore, 
mathematics education, Natchitoches, 
and Anita Weaver, sophomore, home 
economics. Trout. 

Sessions in the Inside View program are 
scheduled for June 27-29, July 11-13 and 
July 22-24. 

SGA President 

Directors for the Inside View program 
at Northwestern are Barbara Gillis, 
coordinator of orientation; Danny 
Seymour, director of high school 
relations, and Agatha Newitt, coor- 
dinator of academic advising. 

"The whole purpose of Inside View is 
to eliminate the confusion that all 
freshmen experience at their first 
registration." Mrs. Gillis said. "It will be 
a tremendous boost to the student if they 
can attend one of the sessions, since along 
with the early registration we will have 
many activities for them which will be 
very beneficial in getting used to NSU . " 

Mrs. Gillis added, "The program is 
designed to benefit the student who 
participates in it, but in a roundabout way 
it will also help those who aren't able to 
for one reason or another. We should be 
able to give those freshmen more 
assistance since we will have already 
registered a large number of incoming 
students. We should be able to handle 
fewer people at a time in a better way, 
thanks to Inside View." she stated. 

Miss La. 

Jenkins in pageant 

Barbie Jenkins of Lafayette will 
represent Northwestern State University 
in the Miss Louisiana Pageant, which is 
scheduled for June 28-30 at the Monroe 
Civic Center Theatre. 

Miss Jenkins, who won the title of 
Northwestern's Lady of the Bracelet last 
November to advance to the state 
pageant, has chosen a trampoline and 
gymnastics routine for her talent 

The NSU sophomore was the 1978 
World Double Mini-Trampoline 
Champion and in 1977 reigned as the 
National Synnronized Trampoline 
Champion and Junior Olympic Tram- 
poline Champion. She has had eight years 
of trampoline and gymnastics training in 
addition to 14 years of instruction in 

A 5-foot-3 blonde, Miss Jenkins will 
compete with beauties from across the 
state in evening gown, talent and swimsuit 
competition at the Monroe pageant. 

State pageant preliminaries will be 
conducted June 28-29, and the finals will 
be held June 30. The Miss Louisiana 
Pageant is sponsored by the Monroe 

Miss Jenkins, a 1978 graduate of 
Lafayette High School, is the daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond E. Jenkins. At 
Northwestern, she is majoring in health, 
safety and physical education. 

The 18-year-old NSU coed has been a 
university twirler, Demon Bat Girl, 
Dr-a.™ OH for Kappa Sisms Fraternity, 
Student Government Association Senator 
and the outstanding pledge for Delta Zeta 
State Province. 

Sponsoring Miss Jenkins at the Miss 
Louisiana Pageant will be Northwestern's 
Student Union Governing Board, which 
produces the university's Lady of the 
Bracelet beauty pageant each fall as a 
Miss America preliminary.

Involvement key, says McCarty 

by Doug Ireland 
Sauce Editor 

The key goal for Northwestern during the 
next year, is to continue to reestablish 
pride in NSU,- according to Student 
Government Association President, Terry 

"It all depends on student involvemen- 
," McCarty said in a recent interview. 
"The more good people who we can get 
involved in all facets of university life, the 
better a school we'll have. The students 
have to realize that this is their university, 
and that they need ot get involved to help 
make it a better place for everyone." 

"Participation can add so much to your 
education," he said. "It teaches you 
many valuable lessons that just ca can't be 
learned in the classroom. It's a kind of 
two- way deal that both the individual and 
the institution benefit from." 

Student morale at Northwestern seems 
to be building up, accoding to McCarty. 
"So many people I've talked to seem 
excited about this upcoming year," he 
said. "I know I am, and it would be hard 
not to be, considering the type people we 
have here at NSU." 

McCarty admitted to alittle ner- 
vousness whne he first assumed office in 

May, but now that he's had time to grow 
used to the job, he is confident. "I feel 
comfortable now. I feel that I have 
command of the office and know the job 
well enough to do it right." 

"I don't have all the answers," laughed 
McCarty," but I try to find them out. 
This job is a challenge each new day to try 
and make SGA and NSU better," he said. 
"We've g got some good people and a 
great admisistration to work with, which 
helps alot." 

The SGA is not taking it easy this 
summer, accoding to McCarty. "We are 
really pretty busy trying to organize 
several things for later in the year," he 

Election Forum 

One of those projects being worked on 
is an 'Election Forum' in which all 
candidates for statewide office would be 
invited to come and speak to NSU 
students. "Several of the candidates have 
already asked us for permission to 
come," McCarty said, "but unitl more 
definite plans can be made, we won't 

grant anybody permission in order to be 
fair. It's just a matter of time though." 

Another project which McCarty is 
exerted about is the SGA book co-op, 
coordinated by SGA Vice-President 
James Mit Mitchell. The co-op will open 
near the end of the summer session so that 
sutdents may sell back or buy books. 

McCarty explained that in the co-op, a 
student would turn the book into the SGA 
office to sell at a preice set by the student. 
The SGA would make no money from the 
co-op, and would only serve as a kind of 
merket place for students to buy and sell 
the books "at hopefully a better preice 
than they could get at the bookstore," he 

The proposed Firsbee golf course, to be 
located behind Rapides Dorm, "is still in 
the planning stages," siad McCarty. "We 
really need osme student inDut on this to 
see if it would be used enough to justify 
the expense." 

Argus opinion 

McCarty also asked for some student 
opinions on the magazine 'Areus' 

published once every semester. "We'd 
like to find out what everybody thinks of 
it, and see if there is enough need and 
interest there to continue publishing it." 

The SGA president said that another 
thing that the SGA hoped to accomplish 
this summer was the placemnt of bicycle 
racks near major building. "We looked 
around and found eight, and hope to have 
those in place as soon as possible," he 
stated. "We think that with the gas 
situation like it is, more people may begin 
to rides bikes to class, and if there is a 
need for more racks, we'll buy them," 
said McCarty. 

Some students say that SGA isn't 
working for them, but McCarty can't see 
their point. "I don't think that the people 
who believe that have ever gotten in- 
volved, because once someone gets into 
something like SGA you begin to really 
appreciated how much \t really does do. 
This job— or any job in SGA— isn't 
something that you can leave at the of- 
fice," claimed McCarty. "It's like being a 
doctor in a way," he smiled, "because 
you're on call all the time."

No controversy 

Traditionally, the summer 
semester at Northwestern is a time 
when students, faculty and ad- 
ministration alike can sit back and 
relax. There is a definite lack of 
controversy concerning the 
university during the summer-after 
all, it is rather difficult to get all 
worked up over a new course or 
curriculum offering or a new 
orientation program. 

Difficult, I said, but not im- 

I don't know if anyone is upset 
about any new classes that are (or, 
more likely, that aren't) being 
offered this summer, but without a 
doubt there are many who are upset 
about the new NSU summer 
orientation program Inside View. 

Inside View is Northwestern's 
attempt to try to upgrade the 
orientation process for incoming 
freshmen. Basically, it is a program 
which allows the freshmen to attend 
a three-day session here during the 
summer which helps him to become 
familiar with the campus, to meet 
some of his instructors and 
classmates, and to register for his 
fall classes early; The main purpose 
of the program is to help ease some 
of the unavoidable confusion that 
the first time student encounters 
during the readjustment from high 
school to college. We can all 
remember the unbearably long line 
in Caldwell Hall that, rumor had it, 
led to our packets, and the con- 
fusion of not knowing which 
building was the Arts ' Sciences 
Building and which was Keyser 
Hall. Through Inside View, in- 
coming freshmen will not have to 
wait for hours in a line to pick up 
their packets', and they should learn 
that Arts 9 Sciences is Keyser Hall. 

The program has many good 
points. It will not only relieve some 
of the pressure for the freshmen, 
but also for the staff which until 
now had to engage in a mad three- 
day scramble to try to make sure 
every freshman was advised and 
registered properly, while also 
trying to deal with the rest of us 
also. The program will bring the 
freshmen back to NSU in the fall 
with an idea of where everything is 
and what everything is for. 

It should help them to make some 
new friends not only among 
themselves, but also among the staff 
and administration. Since there will 
be three different sessions of Inside 
View, the students will receive more 
individual attention and guidance 
and should enjoy the registration 
experience a little more than past 
freshmen have. 

But before you nod off to sleep 
thinking that this is a complete 
endorsement of Inside View, I'd 
b etter wake you up. Yes, it i s a new 
and innovative program. Yes, it is a 
step out of the dark ages as far as 
freshmen regist rationis concerned. 
And yes, it is about time that we 
realize that we need to make some 
special efforts like Inside View to 
help in increasing Northwestern's 
enrollment. But it is not a foolproof 

As Colleen Cook pointed out in 
her letter in the last issue, those 
freshmen who cannot for one 
reason or another participate in the 
program may get to registration in 
the fall and find that their range of 
selection for teachers and classes is 
slightly limited. As NSU's Director 
of Orientation, Barbara Gillis 
points out, though, "all freshmen 
take basically the same core classes 
during their first semester-English, 
Health, and orientation. There 
shouldn't be a terrible amount of 
difficulty for the kid who has to 
register late (in the fall, rather than 
during Inside View). And we didn't 
intend this program to hurt those 
who can't participate, but rather to 
help those who can." 

One of the freshmen who will be 
taking part in Inside View wanted to 
know, "Why don't they just keep us 
here for a five-day session, and get 
everything done then that they do 
during the class (Orientation 101) 
w e have to take in the fall?" 

For an incoming freshmanr I 
think this person has a pretty good 
idea. Why not keep them here for 
five days and acquaint them with all 
of the things a freshman needs to 
know. Since the orientation classes 
are only one hour's credit but meet 
just the same as a three-hour class, 
why not consider using Inside View 
as NSU's orientation class. Say the 
students are 'being orientated' for 
five hours a day during the week of 
Inside View. ..well, orientation 
classes meet three times a week for 
six weeks, an unless my remedial 
math fails, 30 hours of instruction is 
more than 18. And of those 18 
hours spent in class, most of them 
are spent in a hot, overcrowded 
room which is no fun for anyone 
least of all, the instructors. An easy 
'A' you might say, but if you're 
sitting anywhere but the front, I 
doubt it. 

Why not try that next summer, an 
keep one or two sections of 
orientation for thoe who can't 
participate during the summer. I 
think it would be best-for everyone

Students say test teachers 

Should teachers be 
tested? Should tenure be 
abolished? These are the 
questions asked in this 
week' SauceSurvey. 

Instructors teach for 
years with few checks on 
their ability or success at 
instruction. If students do 
not learn, they are left 
back, regardless of who is 
to blame. The student often 
must suffer because of 
inferior teachers who are 
protected by tenure, a 
status given to teachers 
after a probationary period. 

The level of education in 
Louisiana has decreased in 
recent years. The easy way 
out is to say that the 
students have gotten lazy 
and don't want to learn. 
But examine the situation 
closer. Are the students all 
to blame? Most likely not. 

Some of today's 
students, as in yesteryear, 
are of the "just-get-by" 
variety but this is certainly 
not always the case. Some 
20 or 30 years ago, there 
were undoubtedly more 
then than students learn 

Perhaps the answer lies in 
an intangible called 
motivation. If students can 
get lazy, why not teachers? 
Many students today go 
through high school 
working packets and 
handouts instead of getting 
personal instruction from 
those who are paid to give 
it. Teachers often do not 
even check the packets of 

students' work. In a 

situation like this, the 
instructor provides little 
incentive for students to 

Some say that a testing 
system of some sort will 
serve as incentive to 
teachers. Possibly, they say, 
this would get teacher 
motivated to motivate 
students more. 

In recent years, a 
movement has begun to 
have teachers tested for 
competency, an as ex- 
periment, teachers acoss 
the state took a test 
designed to evaluate their 
performance. Nationally, 
Louisiana finished low in 

Once teachers gain 
tenure, it is very hard to 
have them removed. There 
are only a few grounds for 
teacher dismissal. Gross 
incompetency must be 
shown before removal. 

But what do today's 
students think? 

Jackie Leon, a graduate 

student from Natchitoches, 
says that the test used 
recently is not acceptable. 
"I don't believe a test paper 
and pencil will effectively 
test teachers. Some sort of 
monthly in-class evaluation 
would be the best bet. It 
would cost a lot but it 


would be worth 
Evaluation on one 
doesn't seem fair. 

"Tenure protects 
good teachers," and 
Sharon Bleton, graduate 
student of Winnfield. "the 
NTE test is a go od idea for 
teachers before they gain 
tenure. But once tenure has 
been received, teachers have 
too many other worries and 
should not be faced with 
tests of this nature. There 
needs to be some way to get 
the bad teacher's out, 
though. There should be 
some way to remove those 
who don't come to class 
prepared to teach." 

A graduate student from 
Robeline, Sandra Doolittle, 
adds that teachers should be 
tested initially. "Although 
there are disadvantages to 
the tenure system I do not 
feel that it should be 
abolished. It does offer the 
teacher protection, 
especially in situations 
where other than the 
teacher's ability might be 
the determining factor of 
whether or not she retains 
her position." 

Doug Harrington, 
freshman from DeRidder, 
says "teachers should be 
tested because too many 
teachers get by on giving 
students packets all year 
long, sitting back and not 
teaching. A constant check 
should be made on teacher 
performance. Students get 
blamed to often for bad 
grades when it is really the 
fault of bad teaching. 
Tenure only protects those 
teachers who get lazy and 
depend on the students to 
learn regardless of the 
amount of instruction. The 
teachers who do their jobs 
do not need the protection 
of the tenure laws." 

A Natchez freshmen, 
Mary Christophe, says that 
"teachers should be tested 
to see if they really know 
what they should know." 
Roy Carter, a Natchez 
sophomore, says "If 
parents were cooperative 
and made regular visits to 
the schools, teachers would 
therefore be tested each 
time a parents showed up. 
Since that is not the case, a 
periodic test should be 

given, tenure sort of insures 
an individual of having a 
job. If that person doesn't 
get the big head over job 
security, then everything

I read with interest the letter to the 
editor in the June 12 issue of Current 
Sauce. I agree with Ms. Cook concerning 
preregistration of the new program for 
new freshmen. This will not help those 
freshmen who cannot make it up here for 
the new program. Also, what about the 
regularly enrolled students going to NSU 
this summer? It seems to me that every 
way you may look at it, the students at 
NSU are continually being discriminated 

. Even when Mrs. Barbara Gillis was in 
Housing, and Dr. Galloway was Vice- 
President of Student Affairs, neither of 
them (in my opinion) did a very good job, 
at least not where the concerns of the 
students lay. Admittedly, this is my 
opinion, although I do think that I am not 
alone in what I think. 

Another complaint is housing. 
Regardless of what some administrators 
here at NSU may say, the men resident 
students are seemingly being 
discriminated against! 

Why did the men resident students 
West Rapides for the summer session? 
was said that West Rapides was the oi

get Natchitoches dormitory or ev 
Caspari? The female resident students

and we men, third. Now, I ask you, is t 
right? No wonder there is a declini 
enrollment of men resident students I 
campus! I don't blame them for wantij 
to live off campus! 

The resident students are continual 
getting the "run-around" from the Off! 
of Student Services. We are sometini 
treated more like prisoners than siudd 

This letter may be full of complain 
but if there are complaints, and they i 
justified, then they should be heard a! 
corrections made if at all possible. 

Maybe this fall the Student Servit 
Committee under the leadership of Jam 
Mitchell, can get something accomplish 
that will benefit the resident students. ,

I The Demon Drama Co., the product of a workshop in theatre for high 
school students, will culminate learning activities with the production of 
three one-act plays here on the NSU campus in July. 

One whole boat full of colonists have just 
come over the hill and to the side, a tribe of 
Indians are ready to attack... and in modern day 
Natchitoches! No fear, however, it is just the 
final rehearsal week of the Louisiana outdoor 
drama, "Louisiana Cavalier", in preparation 
for its June 28th opening. Performances will be 
held each Thursday, Friday and Saturday night 
until August 18th. "Louisiana Cavalier" is 
operating with NSU this summer, enabling 
participating NSU students to earn theatre 
workshop credit. 

"Louisiana Cavalier" will be in its fourth 
conse- cutive season when it opens in June. It is 
presented in the outdoor amphitheatre located 
at Grand Ecore just outside Natchitoches on 
the bluffs of the Red River. The production 
depicts the founding of the first settlement in 
the Louisiana Purchase by Louis Juchereau de 
St. Denis and his establishing trade between the 
French and Spanish colonists. 

Some fifty-five persons have been assembled 
from the various central Louisiana com- 
munities and cast in the roles of colonists, 
Indians, Spaniards, and the many other inter- 
esting characters which people the Paul Green 
script. Now in the second week of staging 

rehearsals, the cast is polishing songs, dialogue, 
and battle sequences. 

Beginning this year, a new feature of 
"Louisiana Cavalier" will be the Cavalier 
Players. This group will consist of children 
between the ages of nine and fifteen, who for 
six weeks will receive training in acting, singing, 
and stage movement. The public is cordially 
invited to applaud their efforts wehn on July 
24th, July 31st, and August 2nd, they exhibit 
their talents in "Alice in Wonderland". 

Both "Alice in Wonderland" and 
"Louisiana Cavalier" are under the artistic 
direction of Mark Pettaway, who was formerly 
on the NSU faculty as a drama professor and 
who is now director of Artists Civil Theatre & 
Studio in Lake Charles, Louisiana. 

The new season for "Cavalier" will feature 
some in- teresting changes instituted by Pet- 
taway, as well as new dialogue from the author. 

Scenes have been reinstated, trimmed, shifted, 
new segments have been written, and new 
action sequences added. In addition, the music 
has been expanded and special .dance has been 

~ Portraying the central role of St. Denis is Ric 
Bar- nickel, a radio announcer living in

of Natchitoches. Mrs. Cluck received a BA 
degree at Henderson State University,

Theatre benefits New liberal arts center 
high school students planned for NSU campus 

This summer, ten ambitious high school 
actors and actresses take center stage at 
NSU as the nrely-formed Demon Drama 
Company. These students, in conjuction 
with the NSU Repertory Company, are 
participants in a four-week workshop for 
high school students. The program, 
designed primarily for high school 
juniors, introduces them to the theatrical 
arts in a more formal manner than is 
usual for high school- level theatrics. 

Nine juniors and one senior from high 
schools around the state including 
Lafayette, Acadian, Bolton, Marice, 
really ha[ Menard, St. Agustine, Bastrop and 
Leesville are attending the workshop here 
at NSU. This program presents an 
evolutionary new approach to theatrics

vanced aspects of the theatrical 
production. During its four-week stay,

Scogin said, "We work through our 
state organizations to improve learning 
opportunities in schools and colleges and 
to provide physical activity and recreation 
for all ages." 

He added, "Now, most communities 
see the importance of strengthening 
programs in sports, physical education 
and health in order to establish a strong 
base for lifetime physical activity and 

Scogin stated that most communities 
are extending their recreation programs 
"so that people of all ages can maintain 
physical well-being throughout life." 

Four Northwestern 
professors are serving two-

Almond gets Lowsman Honor 
from Calif ornia Group 

By Rob Bryant 
Special to the Sauce 

NEWPORT BEACH, Ca. —Irrelevant Week 
IV, the annual "shambake" staged by Newport 
Beach businessman Paul Salata primarily for 
laughs but also to honor the last draft pick of 
the National Football Leauge, will be 
highlighted this year by the awarding of the 
"Lowsman Trophy" to the Week's guest of 

Mike Almond, a wide receiver from Nor- 
thwestern State University in Natchitoches, 
Louisiana, will be the recipient of the trophy 
for being the 334th and last player selected in 
last month's draft. 

The design of the trophy, which will be sym- 
bolically irrelevant , is a closely guarded secret 
but promises to rank with other sport awards of 
our time and possibly become better known. 

The week begins relevantly enough on Monday, 
June 25, with a golf tournament to aid the 

Mike Almond 

athletic program at Corona del Mar High 
School. But true to its name, the 1st Annual 
Irrelevant Week Golf Tournamet is, "loser take 
all" and will feature a 3-hoIe playoff among the 
highest registered handicap players at Santa 
Ana, Mesa Verda, Irvine Coast and Big 
Canyon country clubs. 

Also on Monday at approximately 2 p.m. a 
special welcoming committee will greet Almond 
upon his arrival at Orange County Airport. The 
greeting includes a city tour and concludes at 
4:30 p.m. with a formal introduction of 
Almond at a press conference at the Balboa Bay 

Later that first evening at 6:30p.m., Almond 
will be the guest of honor at N.F.L. Night, an 
annula Balboa Bay Club event that attracts 
local pro football players who reside in the 

On Tuesday afternoon, Irrelevant Weekers 
invade Los Angeles for lunch with Southern 
California Sportsbroadcasters and a tour of 
Universal Studios. That evening the scene 
shifts back to the Balboa Bay Club for College 
Night which will be hosted by former U.S.C. 
great Rod Sherman. 

Wednesday of Irrelvant Week begins with the 
traditional trek to Disneyland and return to Los 
Angeles for TV Studio tours. The highlight of 
the week occurs that evening at the Balboa Bay 
Club's Annual Sports Banquet and Roast, 
emceed by the inimitable Paul Salata, who 
founded Irrelevant Week four years ago and 
named the "Lowsman Trophy" this year. 
With the aid and abettance of the Newport 
Beach Chamber of Commerce, the city of 
Newport Beach and the lack of interference 
from the staid National Football League, 
Salata has staged this week of frivolity because, 
"the big names get all the publicity and money. 
But our guy," he continues, "will get a week 
that he'll remember for the rest of his life." 
The unforgettable week concludes with a day at 
the Hollywood Park Race Track, where a race 
is named in honor of Irrelevant Week on 
Thursday. On Friday, Almond leaves with 
Salata for a weekend in Las Vegas. 
Married and the father of a two-year-old 
daughter, the 22 year old Almond is a native of 
Bossier City. He joins Kelvin Kirk of the 
University of Dayton, Jim Kelleher of 
Colorado University and Lee Washburn of 
Montana State University on the infamous list 

of "Irrelevant Week" recipients. None of the 
trio won a job with an N.F.L. club. 
The same lack of success faces the six foot one 
inch, 186 pound receiver, drafted by the Pitt- 
sburgh Steelers, who won Super Bowl XI 1 1 last 

Almond faces the fornimable challenge of 
trying to break into the pass catching corps of 
the Steelers, headed by veterans Lynn Swann 
and John Stallworth, along with another rookie 
prospect fourth round draft choice Calvin 
Sweeney of USC. 

I had just about given up on being drafted," 
Almond said, and I had already started making 
plans to try out with a couple of teams after I 
heard on the radio that the draft was in the 
1 1th round. Only a few minutes later I got a call 
from Pittsburgh, and they told me they were in 
the process of draft drafting me." 
Since that time, he's achieved a certain amount 
of notoriety from media all over the country 
with the dubious honor of being the last player 

"All the wire services have been calling, and 
Newsweek and Sports Illustrated have already 
called me, "Almond chuckled. "It's kind of 
funny right now." The Bossier City native and 
former standout at Bossier High holds virtually 
all of NSU's pass reciving records after a stellar 
four-year career. He holds Demon marks for 
most catches in a career with 95 and most 
receiving yardage in a career with 1,562 yards, 
and he also has the single-game record for 
most receptions after hauling in 10 passes for 
145 yards this past season against Louisville. 
During the senior season, Almond had 27 grabs 
for 483 yards and three touchdowns during the 
Demons' 5-6 campaign. 

"I had heard from several teams," said 
Almond, "and I kind of expected that I would 
be going late. I hadn't figured on it being that 
late, though." 

Almond will join a talent-rich Steeler squad 
that includes fromer Northwestern teammate 
Sidney "Thunder" Thornton , a running vack 
with the world champoins. He is apparently 
undeterred about his prospects, though. 
"They have some terrific talent, "he said. 
"Both Swann and Stallworth are great, and 
maybe I'll learn something from the, them. 
There are a lot of teams that need wide 
receivers worse than Pittsburgh, through, and 
if things don't work out there I'll be trying out 
with some other teams." 

Ladies to host Christmas Classic tourney 

Northwestern's Lady Demon 
badketball team will be facing a 24-game 
schedule which also includes at least four 
tournament appearances during the 1979- 
80 season. 

The schedule was announced this week 
by Lady Demon coach and coordinator of 
womens athletics Pat Nolen and includes 
meetings with several brand-new op- 
ponents in Florida State, South Alabama, 
Southern Mississippi, Texas-Arlington 
and Southern Methodist. 

"We feel that our schedule gives us a 
great deal of variety this year and that we 
will be facing a lot of strong teams," 
Nolen said. "We're playing some new 
teams this year that we don't know much 
about, so it will be interesting to see if our 
squad will adjust to new styles of play." 

The Lady Demons, in their second year 
under Nolen after a 12-15 season in 1978- 
79, open their campaign at home on 
Friday, Nov. 16, against Xavier 
University. That will be followed bv back-

Intramural basketball underway now 

Intramural half-court three-on-three 
basketball started last week, according to NSU 
Intramural Director Ginger Parrish. There are 
seven teams in the women's division and six in 
the men's group. 

Two of the top units in the women's 
classification are Go Back to Softball and 
Dunking Donuts, while No Shirt and Golden 
Express are leading in the men's division. 

In last week's women's action, Reversed 
Oreos stomped the Half-Pints 32-10 as Tootie 
Cary had 12 points for the winners. Vicky 

Hopper had six for the Half- Pints. Go Back to 
Softball edged Dunking Donuts 22-21 behind 
the all-around play of Linda Jones. Regena 
Barees had 14 points in a losing cause for the 

The Donuts bounced back to whip the Half- 
Pints 27-17, paced by Wendy Cos's 12 markers. 
Karla Thomas scored all 17 of the losers' 
points. The big game in women's play saw Go 
Back to Softball outlast Reversed Oreos 46-42 
in double overtime. Jones poured in 31 for the 
winners, and Tootie Cary hit 18 in the contest 

In men's play, Golden Express took two 
wins, freezing the Eskimos 21-18 and crushing 
the Crusaders 38-26. Anthony Butler led the 
way for the Express with 22 in the two contests, 
while Earnest Wade and Gary Sanders each had 
14 in the second win. Jarrot Handy scored 12 
for the Crusaders, and Arron Johnson and Pat 
Ritchey both had eight for the Eskimos. 

No Shirt topped the Jocks 41-39 behind the 
14- point tandem scoring of Arthur Hill and 
Glenn Carlson. Larry Ayers popped in 14 for 
the Jocks in a losing effort. 

Boldness Through Basketball 
The "Boldness Through Basketball" team, made up primarily of 
present and former NSU Students and sponsored by the Natchitoches 
First Baptist Church, recently completed two weeks of Christian mission 
work in the Dominican Republic. They played exhibition games, con- 
ducted clinics, spoke in churches and schools and assisted Baptist 
missionaries. Team members were (kneeling) from left to right: Bobby 
Shaw, Randy Clark and Clark Boydstun; (standing) Harold Ashcraft, 
Mike Fyler, Jim Hoops, Larry Ayres and Chuck Reed. (Not pictured-

Demon roundballers to 
meet Texas, Ohio State 

A 26-game schedule, including a total 
of 12 homegames and road contests with 
such national powers as Texas and Ohio 
State, will be facing Nor- 
thwestern'sbasketball squad during the 
1979-80 season. 

The schedule was announced this week 
by NSU head coach Tynes Hildebrand 
after approval by the NSU Athletic 

"We feel that this is an excellent 
schedule," Hildebrand said. "We've got 
some of the best teams in the area coming 
to our place this year, and we're going up 
against a couple of the nation's finest 
teams on a couple of good trips." 

The Demons, coming off a 7-19 season 
in 1978-79, will open their campaign in a 
big way on Friday, Nov. 30, when they 
face national power Texas in Austin in the 
first of five meetings with national- 
tournament teams during the season. 

Both Texas and Northeast Louisiana, 
which the Demons face in a home-and- 
home series, took part in the National 
Invitational Tournament last year, while 

Ohio State was an NCAA tournament 
team. In addition to these, two other 
Louisiana schools, Nicholls State and La. 
College, both made appearances in the 
NCAA Division II and NAIA national 
tournaments last season, and the Demons 
face both in home-and-home ap- 

"There are a number of top-notch 
teams all through our schedule," said 
Hildebrand, "but I feel that if our team 
plays well that we will be able to compete 
with anybody." 

The Demons open their home season on 
Wednesday, Dec. 5, against rival Mc- 
Neese State in Prather Coliseum. In 
addition to the Cowboys, NSU will also 
play home-and-home series with 
Southwestern La., La. Tech, Centenary, 
Southern Mississippi, Grambling, 
Southeastern La. and Houston Baptist in 
addition to those already mentioned. All 
home games start at 7:30. 

NSU will also meet East Texas Baptist 
in a solo home appearance and will face 
Bowling Green University in Bowling 
Green, Ohio, in a single road game.

\Hot Sauce I 

Hot Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
President Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
have a question, comment, com- 
plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(Room 225A in Keyser Hall) and 
we'll pass it along to Dr. Bienvenu. 

Dr. Bienvenu: 

Are there any plans in the near 
future to do some permanent repair 
work on the campus roads and 
parking lots? 

A. The State Department of 
Highways had anticipated receiving 
matching funds from the Federal 
Government, which were dedicated 
to the repair of roads on the 
Campus. Engineers from the 
Department and representatives 
from Mr. Lindsey's office 
developed a plan for the resurfacing 
of most of the streets on the 
Campus. It appears now that the 
Federal funds have not been 
provided, and that this work will be 
delayed. We are, however, 
negotiating with the Department of 
Highways, at this time, in an effort 
to repair the potholes prior to future 
overlay. These potholes have not 
been repaired because the type of 
materials used for temporary repairs 
of this type must be removed prior 
to any overlay process. 
Dr. Bienvenu: 

I am one of the students who 
participated in Inside View last 
week. I just wanted to say thanks to 
NSU, Mrs. Gillis, and the whole 
Insiders staff for helping me. We 
all enjoyed it. 

A.I would like to thank all of the 
students, faculty and staff, who 
participated in the Inside View 
Program recently held for new 
freshman students. The program 
enjoyed tremendous success, and 
certainly will enhance our recruiting 
efforts tremendously. The only 
comment I have heard regarding 
NSU student participants in the 
program was that they were simply 
Dr. Bienvenu: 

Is there any chance that general 
students will be able to use the 
weights and facilities in the new 
Field House? Maybe it can be open 
for general use at least a couple of 
hours a day, or a couple of days in 
the week, until the intramural 
department can buy some equip- 
ment for everyone to use. 

A. I will discuss the matter of the 
use of the weights in the new 
Fieldhouse with Coach Williams. I 
do know that at this time a 
Universal Gym is available for 
general student use in the West 
Consourse of the Coliseum. After 
we have had a chance to discuss the 
matter, I will get in touch with either 
Doug or Miss Parrish. 
Dr. Bienvenu: 

Why does NSU continue to 
require all freshmen to take 
Orientation for a grade? I know of 
several people who had perfect 
grade point averages only to make a 
B or worse in Orientation simply 
because they were in such large 
classes that it was nearly impossible 
to hear unless they were sitting up 
' front. 

A.I am somewhat amazed at this 
Question because I have known of a 
number of students in the past who, 
if they had taken only Orientation 
for credit, would have had a 4.0 
average when they graduated. 
Other courses dropped them to 
below a C average and they never 
graduated. Seriously, we believe 
that Orientation is important to a 
student's development at Nor- 
thwestern. It is through Orientation 
that a student learns the rules and 
regulations of the Library, the 
University, and becomes acquainted 
with the people who are responsible 
for certain areas within the 

1 University's operation. Should 
hearing the instructor be a problem, 

: the student should make it known to 
the instructor, and I am sure the 
instructor will place the student 
closer to the front of the classroom 
Where he or she could hear. Class 
sizes at Northwestern are small 
compared to those at most other 
Public institutions, but when a 
student experiences difficulties in 
Seeing and-or hearing the instructor, 
I'm certain the problem can be

Caldwell appointed 
new band director 

July 10, 1979 

Dr. Victor Kenneth Caldwell of 
Milwaukee, Wis., who has 25 years 
of experience as a high school and 
college band director, has been 
appointed professor of music and 
director of bands at Northwestern. 

The appointment of the 46-year- 
old native of Nacogdoches, Tex., to 
the music faculty at Northwestern 
was announced last week by NSU 
president Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu and 
Dr. J. Robert Smith, chairmen of 
the university's Department of 

Caldwell has served for the past 
year as director of bands at the 
University of Wisconsin at 
Milwaukee. Previously, he was 
director of bands for seven years at 
El Camino College in Torrance, 

The El Camino College Sym- 
phonic and Marching Bands, which 
performed under Caldwell's 
leadership from 1971 until June of 
1978, toured internationally and 
were selected to give special per- 
formances in 1975 during the 
College Band Directors National 
Association Conference in Berkley, 
Calif. The bands also performed at 
Los Angeles Rams football games in 
the Coliseum and at Los Angeles 
Dodgers baseball games. 

As director of bands at El 
Camino College, Caldwell was 
invited to be the guest conductor in 
1977 for the All Southern California 
High School Honor Band. He 
served twice-in 1973 and 1976-as 
guest conductor for the Arizona All- 
State High School Honor Band. 

Also included among Caldwell's 
numerous honors were his selection 

as guest conductor for two 
European music tours. He con- 
ducted the California Area High 
School Honor Band during its 1976 
summer tour of England and 
Scotland and in 1975 was guest 
conductor for the Long Beach Slate 
University Symphonic Band which 
performed in Switzerland, Austria 
and Germany. 

Caldwell was a high school band 
director in Texas for 13 years before 
earning the Doctor of Music 
Education degree from Arizona 
State University in 1976. 

Caldwell's last two high school 
band assignments— at Weslaco Hieh 
School from 1965 to 1969 and 
Nacogdoches High School from 
1960 to 1965-produced six con- 
secutive sweepstakes awards for 
superior contest performances in 
marching, concert and sight 

Caldwell won sweepstakes awards 
in each of the four years he was at 
Weslaco High School and in each of 
his last two years at Nacogdoches 
High School. 

His bands at Weslaco and 
Nacogdoches won a total of 22 
superior ratings at contests, in- 
cluding eight consecutive years 
when the bands received superior 
marks in marching and concert 
performance judging. 

Caldwell, who served as 
president-elect of the western 
division of the College Band 
Directors National Association, has 
served for several years as ad- 
judicator in the areas of marching 
field shows, parades, concert 
performances, jazz festivals and 
solo and ensemble festivals. 

In California, he judged twice for 
the California Parade Band Review 
and served as a judge for three years 
at the Long Beach State University 
Marching Festival and frfe^ 
California Music Educators 
Association Concert Festival. 

While doing post-graduate work 
at Arizona State University, 
Caldwell served two years as a 
concert judge for the Mountain 
States Music Festival in Tempe, 
Ariz., and he judged three years at 
the Arizona Music Educators 
Association Concert Festival. 

Northwestern's new director of 
bands earned a bachelor of music 
degree in 1957 from Stephen F. 
Austin State University and the 
master of arts degree in 1963 from 
Sam Houston State University. 

NSU co-eds Lynn Taitano (left) and Mary

'This is alright 9

Sauce Editor 

Program is successful 

If first impressions mean 
anything, then it's safe to say that 
the first group of incoming 
freshmen to participate in Nor- 
thwestern's innovative Inside View 
orientation program were very 
impressed with the way the program 
was handled here last week. 

A group of 74 future freshmen 
took part in the first of three 
sessions of the new program, which 
is designed to ease the transition 
from high school to college life. The 
primary feature of Inside View is 
that the participants are able to pre- 
register for their fall classes, thus 
easing much of the confusion that 
first-time students encounter upon 

One of the snags in the program, 
the problem of what happens to 
those who can't participate in Inside 
View due to a job commitment or 
some other reason and thus miss out 
on the early registration, was 

cleared up late last week when the 
Office of Admissions announced 
that they may also register, early. 
Incoming freshmen who do not 
participate in the program will be 
allowed to register with the Inside 
View group this Friday, July 13. 

Dr. Austin Temple of the Ad- 
missions Office said that packets for 
those students will be available in 
his office on Wednesday, and that 
the students would be able to 
register for the fall semester on 
Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in 
the Student Union Ballroom. Dr. 
Temple emphasized that this was 
only for first-time freshmen who 
will be entering NSU in the fall 

There is much more to Inside 
View than early registration, 
though, as the group quickly 
learned upon arrival on campus. 
They were assigned dorm rooms for 
their stay, and ate in the cafeteria. 
They attended talks on university 
regulations and student life, met

Energy conservation being encouraged in La. 

The Policy and Planning Division 
in Baton Rouge has until recently 
been a quiet division of the 
Department of Natural Resources. 
Seminars this spring and summer 
have kept the agency busy, though. 
Some 150 people, including 
builders, have taken part in these 

seminars to teach ways of cutting 
energy use-and utility bills — in 

Gov. Edwin Edwards has 
proclaimed July as "Energy 
Conservation Month" in Louisiana. 
Power companies, he says, have 
detailed programs for consumers to 

follow to benefit from wise and 
efficient use of energy.

Edwards adds, "are now providing

customers, pointing out ways to

1979 Outdoor Concert set 

The Student Union Governing 
Board will sponsor its annual 
Outdoor Concert next Wednesday, 
Julv 18, behind Iberville Dining 

The concert, the major summer 
production of SUGB, will feature 
veteran entertainer G.G. Shinn and 
the Aces, an acrobatic professional 
frisbee team 

Shinn will open the evenings' 
show at 4 p.m., and the Aces will 
perform from 5 until 6. Shinn will 
return shortly after that to play 
another set. 

"The response to our outdoor 
concerts has been tremendous in the 
past," said Jim Godwin, Union 
Board first Vice-President. "We 

Aces' Ace 

had G.G. two summers ago and he 
did a great job, and from what we 
understand, he has improved greatly 
since then, so we should really be in 
for a super show this time." 

The Aces, who have performed 
all over the United States and 
Canada, "should be a good way to 
fill the break between sets" Godwin 
said. "They are something to see, 
and I'm sure all of the frisbee buffs 
will want to be on hand to watch 
their exhibition." 

Ron Thomas, SUGB President, 
said that in past years the summer 
outdoor concerts have been very 
successful and well-received, and he 
encouraged all students and faculty 
members to attend next Wed- 
nesday's activities. 

Last summer, the concert bands 
Magenta and Orpheus were featured 
on June 14, and a crowd of some 
500 persons enjoyed the music and 
food. In 1977, many contests and 
games were held in conjunction w^ith 
The concert, which featured Shinn 
and Heat. Thomas said there were 
plans for games this year, but that 
nothing was definite yet. 

In other SUGB news, Concert 
Committee Chairman David 
Hammons announced that a 
meeting of the committee would be 
held tomorrow night (Wednesday) 
at 7 p.m. in the Union Board 
Conference Room in the Student 
Union. The meeting is open to 
anyone who wishes to attend. 


Other members of the Policy and 
Planning Division are working to 
encourage carpools. The math is 
compelling. If the average com- 
muting trip carried two persons, 
instead of 1 .4 persons as is now the 
case, the nation would save 500,000 
barrels of oil a day. 

The concept of the work of the 
division is to enlist the public in a lot 
of small adjustments to alleviate 

with teachers and administration 
officials, and enjoyed social ac- 
tivities such as a disco dance, a luau, 
and a boat ride on Cane River. 

"If nothing else, they're doing a 
good job of wearing us out," 
laughed Joseph Stamey of Nat- 
chitoches as he relaxed at the luau at 
the end of the first day's activities. 
"It's been a whole lot better than I 
had thought it might be, and 1 really 
am impressed at the way they've run 
thi ngs." 

The directors of Inside View, 
Barbara Gillis, Danny Seymour and 
Agatha Newitt, deserved a lions' 
share of the credit for the success of 
the program's first session, but Lisa 
Shaw of DeRidder said, "I don't 
know what we would've done 
without the Insiders" (a group of 
nine NSU students serving as 
counselors). "They helped to break 
the ice-they're easy to talk to, and 
they try their best to help us when 
we need it," she said. 

Becky Farquar, also from 
DeRidder, said that ever since her 
father attended NSU she had been 
sold on the idea of coming to school 
here. "It's where I want to be, and 
this program is just another good 
reason to come." 

The program had its awkward 
moments-"some of those songs 
they sang, like the one about 
Northwestern set to the Budweiser 
music, were really silly," one person 
said-but all thing considered, the 74 
students were impressed with Inside 
View, and more importantly, with 
NSU. As one student told me as the 
program progressed, "You know, 
this is alright."

Page 2, CURRENT SAUCE, Tuesday, July 10, 1979 

By Doug Ireland 


One of the things that I tola 
myself never to do when I took the 
Current Sauce editorship was to be 
sarcastic, so please try and picture 
what follows as dry humor... wet 
humor, or whatever. 

I was amazed to see that our 
circulation staff, headed by Tony 
Hernandez, accomplished such wide 
distribution of the last issue. It was 
astounding to find., make that 
not to find any papers in the funny 
looking purple Sauce boxes by noon 
Wednesday. It is truly rewarding to 
find that our efforts to put out a 
paper that would be eagerly awaited 
by our readers were so successful. I 
really agonized over who to credit 
with the extrordinary popularity of 
the last issue. Could it be that since 
we had a picture of Lady of the 
Bracelet Barbie Jenkins on the front 
page, all of the men just had to have 
a copy? Could it be that everyone 
wanted to see what would be in Hot 
Sauce? Or was it that interview with 
SGA President Terry McCarty? It 
could have been that everbody 
wanted to clip out a copy of the 
men's and women's basketball 
schedules to keep in their wallets, 
but those wallet-sized schedules 
always come out every year. ..I was 

Never in my wildest dreams did I 
forsee such wild popularity for the 
Sauce --and during the summer, 
too! I was about to give up won- 
dering and head on over to the Pizza 
Inn with a couple of friends to get a 

free pizza-you know the ad, you 
buy one pizza and you get a pizza of 
the next smaller size free-when 
another friend poked his head in the 
door and asked me, "Hey, do you 
have about ten extra papers that I 
can have? You saw the free drink 
ad, didn't you?" 

I had to say no, I hadn't seen the 
ad, and no, because I had only one 
paper left in the office. But I had to 
ask. "What ad was it? What free 

"Man, the Company ran a 
coupon ad that had 'good for one 
free drink thru July 10' on it, and 
...well, I can't find any loose copies 
to carry out there." 

I looked on the back page of the 
paper, and lo and behold, there it 
was. I thought for a second. ..we 
print 2,000 copies of each paper, 
each paper has an ad, say 75 per 
cent go out to the Company. Boy, 
that's a lot of glasses to clean! 

"Man, you know it's rough when 
the editor can't lay his hands on a 
couple of copies," my friend 

He was right. It is bad when I 
can't find five copies of the paper to 
put in our file. But it is worse when 
some folks grab ten papers so they 
can have a good time, while some 
other poor fellow who might even 
want to see what he is paying that 
publication fee for can't see what he 
is paying that fee for. ..because he 
can't find a copy. Sure, take ad- 
vantage of those coupon ads. But 
only one to a customer please. 

Good start 

No matter how much you talk 
about, plan, and organize 
something, you never really are sure 
how it will turn out until it does turn 
out. Such is the case of Inside View, 
NSU's new orientation program. 
Directors Barbara Gillis, Danny 
Seymour, and Agatha Newitt, along 
with their student staff of 'Insiders' 
worked and planned and talked 
about Inside View for several 
^ weeks. ..and last week, they took 
their first test. While they did not 
totally overwhelm the 74 kids who 
took part in the initial session, they 
certainly did impress them. Most of 
the group were excited as they 
arrived on campus for their three- 
day experience. ..oh, they tried hard 
not to act like it, but they all by-and- 
large were very interested to see 
what was to happen to them. The 
good thing about Inside View, I 
found, was that these kids left NSU 
with that same air of excitement that 
they had when they came. They got 
a good look at Northwestern, and 
they liked what they saw. 

Still, there is room for im- 
provement, but that will come with 

time and experience-experience to 
be gathered during the next two 
sessions of Inside View, July 11-13 
and 22-24. This is not only a 
learning process for the incoming 
freshmen, but also for the Inside 
View staff. They must pay careful 
attention to the questions and 
requests of the students who par- 
ticipate so that by next summer, 
NSU can have a program that will 
be more in tune with the needs of 
the freshmen. 

This program is something that 
can have a tremendous impact on 
enrollment-good or bad. 

Inside View might be one of the 
keys to the future of NSU. The 
better it goes, the more students will 
want to be involved in it. Even- 
tually, it would be ideal that almost 
90 percent of the incoming freshmen 
participate-as they do at some other 
similar programs in the state. 

At any rate, that is only 
talk. ..right now. But if the Inside 
View program continues to im- 
prove, anything is possible. And 
without a doubt, Inside View is off 
to a good start. 

Nursery rhymes 

It's time for 20th Century Mother 
Goose, an annual examination of 
the almost idiotic events of the year, 
as seen by Mike Peters, a syndicated 
cartoonist for the Dayton (OH) 
Daily News. It hasn't been the best 
of years for old Mother Goose, but 
Peters says it's a great year for 
political cartoonists. With President 
Carter beginning to feel just nervous 
enough about his chances for re- 
ejection to threaten the posterior of 
Sen. Ted Kennedy, gas lines starting 
to stretch out into the streets, and 
the Lee Marvin vs. Michelle Triola 
Marvin live-in trial, it is no wonder 
that this is a banner year for 
political satire. 

The most immediate of these 
issues is the modern-day story of 
Chicken Little., instead of the 
whole sky falling, we learn that it's 
just 85 tons of mankind's most 
advanced technology that is going to 
settle somewhere on Earth in the 
next day or so. Yes, Skylab is 
coming, and even though NASA 
says the odds on any specific in- 
dividual on Earth being hit by a 
piece of the satellite are (forgive the 
pun) astronomical, recent reports 
say the odds on somebody being 
struck by Skvlab are only 152 to 1. 

At first, things looked really grim, 
when scientists predicted the date of 
return to be this Friday-Friday, 
July 13. But thank goodness, they 
quickly decided that was not a day 
that needed any more bad luck, and 
the most recent estimates say that 
Skylab will "come tumbling down" 
(a la Humpty Dumpty) sometime 

The only thing that has me 
worried about all this is that nobody 
knows where the fallout zone is 
going to be. I guess this is one of 
those times when we really had 
better keep our eyes open and our 
cars running, because if there is any 
great plan to stop Skylab, nobody 
knows about it yet. Sure, NASA 
says it will probably fall into an 
ocean, but unless I'm seriously 
mistaken they're the same folks who 
launched it back in 1973. ..see how 
reliable their theories are? Don't get 
me wrong-I'm not trying to start a 
panic, (I really doubt that I could if 
I wanted to)-but it is an old 
American tradition to laugh in the 
face of potential danger, like John 
Wayne did so often before he saved 
the day. So Duke, if you'll pardon 
me, I think I'm going off someplace 
and just bust a gut. ..laughing.

Fuel Shortage affects Americans 

Should anyone be blamed for the 
shortage of fuel now facing 
Americans? Americans seem to be 
searching for just such a culprit, i 
SauceSurvey found last week. 

The first to be blamed were the 
Arabs and the OPEC nations. 
Prices on barrels of oil have in- 
creased tremendously in the last 
years and this has angered 
Americans. Suggestions have been i 
in the public's mind that the Middle 
Easterners are "creating" a gasoline 
or oil shortage: telling the world 
there is a shortage but actually, 
rumors say, they are just holding 
back oil in hopes of getting higher 

Another to be blamed is the 
American oil companies. They have 
been accused of holding back 
supplies only to raise local prices. 
The companies seemed to be getting 
rich while the pockets of Mr. 
Average American has been emp- 
tying at the gas pumps. 

Locally-owned gas stations have 
also come under fire for the rise in 
gasoline prices. These prices are 
reaching, if not already reached, to 
one dollar per gallon. On the 
surface, Americans see this as an 
attempt by the station operators to 
get more money for the same 

Anger has been voiced against the 
automobile companies as well. The 
"gas-guzzler" automobiles have 
been named as a leading villain in 
the gas crunch. These large vehicles 
use a large amount of fuel faster 
than the smaller cars. Americans 
condemn the automibile companies 
for continuing to make these "gas 
guzzlers" and not developing and 
not using a more efficient energy- 
saver automobile. 

Government has also been put 
through the ringer because of the 
fuel situation. Criticized for not 
having a more effective energy 
program, the government, the 
Presidency and the Congress, are 
suffering a popularity crisis with 
their constituencies. 

President Carter and Energy 
Secretary James Schlessinger have 
received the butt of the blame for 
the shortage. Some feel Carter 
should be tougher on the OPEC 
countries and assert American 
power. It is fact that Mexico has oil 
available to the United States. But 
Schlessinger, most feel, did not 
handle that opportunity to the 
advantage of the American people. 

It may not be possible to place the 
blame in one place. The events 
leading to the plight Americans now 
face are the results of many things 
and events. To blame one over the 
other would be incorrect andf 

Americans themselves should 
take some of the blame. For years, 
they ignored warnings to conserve 
energy, bought gas-guzzlers, went 
everywhere in their cars including 
the corner grocery store, using fuel 
unnecessarily. Americans are 
notoriuous wasters of what they 
have in supply until they are forced 
to conserve through rationing, 
which is the case in many states 

Americans have expressed their 
anger, particularly in gas station 
lines waiting to buy what has 
become limits on gasoline pur- 
chases. Violence has occurred over 
and over again while waiting with 
little or no provocaton. 

The reasons for this violence has 
perplexed many of today's 
psychologists. Dr. Joyce Brothers 
and others have said that this was 
because Americans have no control 
over what's happening. They don't 
know who to be angry with. 
Americans are not used to feeling 
helpless. It is frustrating to know 


Dear Editor: 

While residing at Caddo Dorm, I 
was told the dorm to live in on this 
campus was Varnado. I was forever 
being told it was the "hottest" dorm 
at NSU; a "blazing" symbol of 

Well, this summer, I finally got 
the privilege of residing in Varnado 
Hall. Those rumors of it being the 
"hottest" dorm on campus are true. 
Only, perhaps not in the way they 

Where else on campus could you 
fry an egg in your dorm room and 
not even use a hot plate? How many 
dorms can brag about their porch 
being cooler than their bedrooms? 
What students in the other dorms 
can say that they are wet even before 
they take their first shower of the 
day, and that their linen are washed 
daily? What other dorm can 
truthfully proclaim that they possess 
the hottest item on campus (their 
air-conditioning system)? 

Needless to say, we students over 
here at Varnado Oven are fuming! 
This is a beautiful dorm, and it has 
so much potential. It really is the 



that you can do nothing in a bad 
situation to improve conditions. 

Also lack of leadership from the 
government leaders adds to 
America's problems. While 
America waits in the midst of this 
gas crunch, President Carter is in 
Japan, appearing to do little else but 
visit shrines and historical cities. But 
Carter talked energy with the world 
leaders, yet seemingly got little 

The popularity Carter enjoyed in 
the first months of his term has 
turned sour. In a recent ABC News- 
Harris poll a mere 27 percent of 
those polled expressed confidence in 
the job that the American president 
was doing, while there was a 73 
percent negative vote. In handling 
the gasoline situation, Carter 
received a 75 percent negative rating 
and a 25 percent positive vote. Even 
though the President did not create 
the shortage himself, his handling of 
the gas crunch has been found to be 

A NSU faculty member in the 
political science department believes 
blaming Carter solely is unfair. 
"Laying it all on Jimmy's shoulders 
is unreal." Many Americans don't 
realize that this shortage is not of 
Carter's making. It has been coming 
for years and the American public 
has not heeded the warnings 
presented to them. The Congress 
has held up passage of an energy 
program for fear their voters would 
not re-elect them. For years, 
because there has been no crisis, this 
has gone unnoticed and when it is 
needed, the Congress is still not 
responsive and everyone is critical 
of Carter's proposed program. 

Mary Christophe, a freshman 
from Natchez, says it is not as severe 
as a gas shortage as people have 
been led to believe. Authorities in 
1973 also predicted a very bad 
situation yet it just faded away. The 
biggest problem in letting this get 
out of hand is the lack of leadership 
on the pat of President Jimmy 

Leola Carhee, a communter from 
Many, adds this: "In Many, we do 
not have a real gas shortage. Our 
only problem is high priced gas. I 
pay 94 cents a gallon for extra 

She adds, "Personally, I believe 
this gas shortage is a conspiracy. 
The big boys in high places, 
government and oil companies big 
shots just want our money." 

pride of Northwestern and many an 
alumnus has lived within it's walls. 
It is a symbol of what Northwestern 
was, is now, and can be in the 

Let's not allow this dorm to 
whither away. The fact of the 
matter is that the air conditioning 
i system in the building is old. It is 
f senile. Let us let it die with dignity 
j and give it a decent burial. Then let 
us go out and replace it with a 
modern, energy efficient unit. 
$44,000 has been earmarked for 
i Varnado's renovation. If this kind 
j of money can be raised for this 
purpose, then how about getting 
some money allocated for the new 
J unit? If the money can't be raised, 
I then use the S44.000 for the new 
unit. It will do no good to renovate 
a dorm which cannot be used 
because of the heat. 

But, in the meantime, Varnado, 
like Keyser and A. A. Fredericks 
buildings, will be assuming a new 
name. _ 

The new name: Hades Hall.

"The gas shortage is going to 
affect us students tremendously," 
•says Colleen Cook from New 
Orleans. "This is going to mean less 
late night binges, less weekend trips 
home to Mommy and Daddy, less 
traveling in motor vehicles period. 
More students are going to be riding 
bikes around the city, or using their 
feet to go places. The parking 
problem on campus won't be as 
severe, but then Campus Security 
won't be collecting as much money 
for tickets either." 

"Actually, I'm definitely one who 
is a firm believer in conserving 
energy, I really am. "My neighbors 
really ought to play their stereos 
less, run only one electric clock per 
dorm room. 

Ray Harrington, freshman from 
DeRidder, says "It doesn't matter 
who is to blame for our present 
shortage. We must begin to con- 
serve fuel and energy as much as we 
can. Take the initiative. Don't wait 
for the other guy to begin con- 
serving, because he's probably 
waiting for you to begin. 

Americans must join forces and 
begin to conserve what we don't 
need and not waste what we have. 
For years, we have been too 
wasteful. It caught us once before 
during World War II when a 
rationing system was put into play. 
We may soon face another 
nationwide rationing program if we 
don't lessen our consumption and 
conserve what we have.

Regents predict rise in 
future state allocations « 

State funding for higher 
education in Louisiana 
promises to hit an all-time 
high in the coming fiscal 
year, with total state 
revenues for the state's 
higher education system 
projected in excess of 
$300.3 million, the Board 
of Regents reported 
Thursday, June 28. 

In a meeting heavily 
weighted toward the 
consideration of financial 
matters, the Regents also 
adopted a revised version of 
the "State Appropriation 
Formula" for use in the 
1980-81 fiscal year. 

The Regents based their 
projections on higher 
education funding for the 
1979-80 fiscal year on 
allocations outlined in the 
1 979 General Ap- 
propriations Bill as ap- 
proved by the State House 
of Representatives. 

When added together, 
the higher education budget 
and special allocations 
would provide for the 
greatest single-year increase 
in state funding for 
Louisiana higher education 
in recent memory. 

In keeping with its 
responsibilities, the Board 
adopted a revised version of 
the "State Appropriation 
Formula" for use in fiscal 
year 1980-81. The For- 
mula, which is updated 
annually, provides a 
mechanism for the 
equitable distribution of 
state funding among 
Louisiana public colleges 
and universities. 

At the recommendation 
of its Finance Committee, 
the Board revised the 
Formula to include a base 
appropriation for all in- 
stitutions to partially 

compensate for fixed costs 
in such areas as student 
services and physical plant 

The Board also added 10 
percent inflation factor to 
the budgeting process, 
based on state funding in 
support areas. The revised 
Formula retains a provision 
already in effect, stipulating 
that institutions whose rate 
of formula implementation 
exceeds 100 percent are 
entitled to receive no new 
funds in the coming fiscal 
year beyond those 
generated by the inflation 

The newly revised for- 
mula further provides for a 
schedule of student credit 
hour (SCH) values based on 
two cost factors per student 
level and upward revisions 
in the SCH values assigned 
to academic programs in 
the nursing and specialist in 
education categories. 

If enacted in its present 
form, that bill would 
provide for the allocation 
of roughly $199 million in 
state revenues for 18 
Louisiana formula-funded 
institutions, for an average 
89 percent formula im- 
plementation statewide. 
Formala exclusion 
programs and schools 
would share approximately 
$94 million in state funds. 

In addition to normal 
funding sources, the 
Regents reported, the 
state's public higher 
education institutions 
would receive special 
allocations totaling ap- 
proximately $27.3 million 
in conjunction with the 
implementation of a 
general state employee pay 
raise program and con- 
current pay scale ad- 
justments for certain 
categories of state civil 
ser vice em ployees. 

Fortunes and Fiddles at July Jubilee 

queen of Louisiana fiddlers 
is coming here Sunday, July 
15, to headline the stage 
program for the second 
annual July Jubilee which is 
being sponsored by the 
Natchitoches Jaycee 

The star of this year's 
outdoor celebration on the 
downtown riverfront is 14- 
year old Scarlett Dawn 
Johnson, who will be 
presenting two 45-minute 
stage shows during a full 
afternoon of family en- 

Miss Johnson appeared 
on the July Jubilee stage 
last year, and during the 
last 12 months much has 
happened in the life of this 
teenage fiddling sensation 
from Glenmora in Rapides 

The sophomore at 
Glenmora High School 
went to Tennessee last 
August and had an op- 
portunity to perform with 
Porter Waggoner's fiddler, 
Mac Magaha, at Opryland 
in Nashville. She also 
performed with Loretta 
Lynn's band at the country 
music queen's dude ranch 
near Music City. 

Last December, Miss 

Johnson returned to this 
city to entertain thousands 
of people attending the 
Natchitoches Christmas 

The really big news about 
this attractive, young 
musician is that she is the 
Grand Champion of 
Louisiana Fiddlers, a title 
she won this spring during 
the state championships. To 
win this honor, she was 
selected as the junior 
champion in her division 
and became Grand 
Champion after defeating 
three former state cham- 
pions, including the great 
Jamesette Kyle, in a play- 
off to decide the best fiddler 
in Louisiana. 

Miss Johnson is a three- 
time performer on the 
Louisiana Hayride and 
Super Country USA stage 
shows, ans she has en- 
tertained across the state 
for conventions and 

The second annual 
Natchitoches July Jubilee 
will again bring family 
members together for an 
afternoon of games, special 
contests, food and good 

Highlighting a long list of 
events will be the Beech-Nut 

Chewing Tobacco Spitting 
Contest and a dunkin booth 
featuring at least 10 elected 
officials and other area 
personalities as targets. 

The July Jubilee program 
begins at 1 p.m. and 
continues until 6 p.m. 
Treasure hunters beware! 
This year's Natchitoches 
July Jubilee Treasure 
Chest totals some $1,000 in 
cash and merchandise. 

Sponsored by the Nat- 
chitoches Parish Chamber 
of Commerce, the treasure 
hunt is one of the highlights 
of the 2nd Annual July 
Jubilee celebration which is 
scheduled for Sunday, July 

The first clue indicating 
the whereabouts of the tre- 
asure chest containing $500 
in cash will be announced 
Monday at 7 a.m. over 
Station in Natchitoches. 
Additional clues will be 
given each morning over the 
radio station, and bonus 
clues may be obtained by 
treasure hunters in stores of 
participating merchants. A 
list of merchants par- 
ticipating in the treasure 
chest program will be 
announced early next week. 

An envelope indicating it 

will be

The person finding the 
envelope must bring it to 
the Chamber of Commerce 
office, and the treasure 
chest will be presented 
during the afternoon ac- 
tivities of the July Jubilee

Bailey, Wigley shine in title tilts 

We Want It! used a miracle 
finish, scoring after a scramble for a 
loose ball as the buzzer sounded, to 
upend the Crusaders 51-49 and win 
the Intramural three-on-three men's 
basketball crown last Thursday 
night. In women's play, the 
Bullpuppies undid the Reversed 
Oreos 44-34 in the championship 

Andre Bailey banged in 21 to pace 
We Want It!, and his biggest basket 
was his last. With a 49-49 score and 
three seconds left, Bailey came up 
with a loose ball and banked in the 
winning points, just beating the 
buzzer with his shot. Albert Mid- 
dleton also had 21. 

The all-around play of Cindy 
Wigley proved to be the difference 
in the women's game, as she poured 
in 22 points and controlled the 
boards. Sandy Mitchell added 18 for 
the victors, and Tootie Cary had 12 
for the Cookie Squad. 

In earlier playoff action in the 
women's division, the Bullpuppies 
swamped Dunking Donuts 44-20 
behind Wigley's 23-point outburst. 
Belinda Morse chipped in with 15 
for the winners. Teresa Williams 
had 10 for the point. 

Delphine Small canned 19 points 
in to lead Reversed Oreos to a 37-12 
evaporation of the Hall-Pints in 
first round play. Beck y Br own, with 

eight, and Cary, with six, aided in 
the washout. The losers were led by 
Vicky Hopper's 10 markers. 

In the second round, Go Back to 
Softball forfeited to the Bullpup- 
pies, who automatically moved to 
the championship game with the 

Playoff games in the men's 
division generally went down to the 
w ire, The three prelim matches were 
decided by an average of three 
points. In first round play, the 
three-on-three match between the , 
Eskimos and We Want It! turned ' 
into a two-on-two contest when 
neither team could find a third 
player. We Want It! edged the 'Mos 
28-26. Clarence Williams zipped in 
15 and Bailey bucketed 13 for the 
victors, while Mark Scott fired in 18 
in a losing effort. 

In the 'rout', the Crusaders 
washed out the Jocks 41-36. Larry 
Ayres dumped in 19 points for the 
losers, David Thompson hit nine 
markers and Dale Quickel had eight 
for the Jocks. For the winners, 

Middleton hit 12 and Jarrot Handy 
had eight as the Crusaders moved 
into the finals. 

The second round matchup 
between We Want It! and the 
Golden Express had plenty of early 
Fourth of July fireworks, as the 
game went into overtime before We 
Want It! got it, 46-42. Bailey flipped 
in 22 and Williams hit 18 for We 
Want It! Robert Lewis gunned 
through 18 and Anthony Butler 14 
for the Express, but it wasn't 
enough to keep it in the tracks 
leading to the championship tilt. 

Ginger Parrish, Director of the 
Intramural Dept. said that she was 
very pleased with the basketball 
competition and hoped that 
students would continue to take 
advantage of the summer intra- 
activities. Softball competition 
began yesterday, and registration 
for two events, co-ed water 
basketball and tennis, ends soon. 
Deadline for the basketbll signup is 
July 16 and tennis registration ends 
July 13.

George D. Cook III, a veteran of 
radio play-by-play duties for both 
football and basketball, will be the 
voice of Northwestern Demon 
football for the 1979 season. 

The announcement was made last 
week by Bob Burk, president of 
Natchitoches Broadcasting 
Company and NSU flagship station 
KNOC-AM, after Cook was hired 
as news and sports director at the 

"We feel that George will do an 
outstanding job in bringing Nor- 
thwestern football to the people of 
the area," Burk said. "He is an 
excellent play-by-play man and he is 
a very loyal and dedicated person." 

Cook will be stepping into the 
position held by long-time NSU 
broadcaster Norm Fletcher, who 
retired from play-by-play and news 
and sports duties earlier this 
summer to seek the position of 
sheriff of Natchitoches Parish in 
this November's elections. 

"There is nobody who can 
replace Norm Fletcher," said Cook, 
who came to Natchitoches after a 
distinguished career at KASO Radio 
in Minden, "but I feel that we will 
carry on the tradition of excellence 
in broadcasting that Norm 
established during the coming 
season. I am looking forward to it

Current Sauce 

Vol.LXVII No. 4 

Northwestern State University 

Natchitoches La 

July 24, 1979 

\Hot Sauce 

Hot Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
President Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
have a question, comment, com- 
plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(Room 225A in Keyser Hall) and 
we'll pass it along to Dr. Bienvenu. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

I've heard that between $40,000 
and $50,000 has been earmarked for 
the renovation of the lobby in 
Varnado dormitory. This is well 
and good, but did you know that the 
bathrooms on the first and second 
floors of East Varnado are badly in 
need of repair. I do not mean just 
the paint peeling off the walls, I 
mean the plaster, etc., literally 
coming off the wall behind the 
showers. Also, there is a large hole 
in the ceiling of the second floor 
bathroom. Don't you agree that 
these two bathrooms need 
repairing? If you do not know of 
the condition of these two 
bathrooms, then please go and take 
a look. 

Also, the airconditioning and 
heating system in Varnado Dor- 
mitory is badly in need of repair. 
Shouldn't these two areas come 
before the renovation of the lobby? 

A. I appreciate your calling our 
attention to the problems in the 
bathrooms in Varnado Hall. We 
are extremely pleased that the 
Legislature recently approved our 
request for funds which will be used 
in the repair and improvement of 
our dormitories and Dining Hall. 
We will attempt, with these funds, 
to correct conditions of this type in 
all of our dormitories. Again, we 
ask that we be made aware of such 
repair needs so that we can do 
something about them as they 
develop. Mr. Loran Lindsey's 
office welcomes your assistance in 
making us aware of these problems. 

The Air Conditioning System in 
Varnado Hall is not an antiquated 
system, but is actually one of the 
newer systems on the Campus. The 
problem experiencedthis summer 
was one of a motor burning out in 
the chiller station, and our being 
unable to replace it immediately 
because the workers at the 
manufacturers were on strike. I 
think we should credit our air 
conditioning men, especially 
Ambrose Airhart, for their 
ingenuity in providing Varnado with 
the cool air that they were able to 
provide Varnado. 


Varnado is hot campus issue 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

Why are the street lights located 
in the middle of Rapides parking lot 
not turned on at night? It seems to 
me there could be other ways of 
conserving energy. 

A. We have checked the problem 
with the street lights in Rapides 
Parking Lot and found that the time 
clocks had slipped, unbeknown to 
the people at the Power Plant. They 
have already corrected the problem. 
Again, Mr. Lindsey will appreciate 
being informed of such difficulties 
as he frequently is not on the 
Campus at the time the problems 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

How will President Carter's new 
energy regulations affect NSU 
Have the thermostats in campus 
buildings been set up to 78 degrees? 
Has the gas shortage had any affect 
on University travel? 

A. We have received no direction 
as to the types of University 
buildings which fall within 
President Carter's Energy Saving 
Proposal. Some thermostats have 
been set up, the affect of which I am 
somewhat concerned about, because 
of the types of materials in the 
buildings-for example, the tem- 
perature was raised in the Library 
and I am not certain that the 
humidity and t em - 

peraturecombination will not have 
an adverse affect on books and 
other materials in the Library. As 
most of you are also aware, it is 
difficult to control all sections 
within the individual buildings on 
the Campus because of the types of 
air conditioning systems utilized in 
their construction. I might add that 
the types of systems are those

Cindy Brown enjoyed much more than her

to G.G. Shinn, watch the Aces frisbee team in

Dillard testifies 
in landmark case 

Dr. J. L. Dillard a nationally- 
known linguistics authority, says 
schools throughout the United 
States could be affected by a federal 
judge's ruling last week that a 
Michigan school district must 
recognize the language students 
speak at home. 

Dillard was one of several expert 
witnesses called to testify in Detroit 
during the landmark federal court 
case which has given academic 
recognition to the use of Black 

According to the Northwestern 
professor, the Michigan Legal 
Services agency filed suit on behalf 
of 1 1 children against Martin Luther 
King Junior High School of the Ann 
Arbor School District, claiming that 
the school had not helped them 
overcome language barriers, and, 
therefore, had violated their civil 

The ruling by U.S. District Judge 
Charles Joiner requires the Ann 
Arbor School District "to take steps 
to help its teachers to recognize the 
home language of the student and to 
use thatknowledge in their attempts 
to teach reading skills in standard 

"Giving academic recognition to 
black English could be a very big 
thing in this country," said Dillard. 
"The ruling on this case could apply 
to nearly every school system in this 
country. I know some people are 
now planning action in other areas, 
including a suit that is to be filed 
here in Louisiana." 

As an expert witness, Dillard said 
he was questioned about the 
structure of black English, its 
relationship to standard English, its 
distribution among black people 
and the possible difficulties that 
might arise in the school room. 
• "One difficulty you have in the 
classroom," said Dillard, "is an 
attitudinal problem between the 
black student and the teacher, 
because the student caot understand 
why the teacher approves some of 
his sentences and doesn't approve 

Regarding the structure of black 
English, Dillard stated, "There are 
a large number of structural dif- 
ferences between black English and 
standard English, especially in the 
verb system." 

The Northwestern professor 
explained that, in the relationship of 
black English to standard English, 
"There are grammatical mismatches 
in several places, some of which 
overlap but there are many areas of 

Dillard, who is the author of 

several books on the subject of 
black English, said approximately 
80 percent of the black population 
of the United States "speaks 
something that is recognized as 
black dialect." 

While giving his opinion on the 
case, Judge Joiner said, "The 
plaintiff children do speak at home 
and in their local community a 
language that is not itself a 
language barrier. It is not a barrier 
to understand in the classroom. It 
becomes a language barrier when 
the teachers do not take it into 
account in teaching standard 

"There are two solutions that will 
come out of this landmark case," 
said Dillard. "We are going to see 
the development of a dialective 
evaluation test that will be very 
basic, and you are going to see us 
come up with some program for 
teaching standard English that takes 
into full account that dialect where 
it exists."

jsauce News Editor 

You wake up in the middle of the 
night, very uncomfortable. The 
dorm is Hot, and you get hot and 
bothered. So you decide to do 
something about it-lodge a com- 
plaint, and see that something gets 
done... but how? 

This problem recently faces some 
NSU students housing this summer 
at Varnado. To make their com- 
plaints and demands known, they 
chose to express them in a lengthy 
letter to the Current Sauce - 

The letter said that they had paid 
for air-conditioning for their 
summer housing, and now it seemed 
as if the air conditioner was out of 
order 95 percent of the time. 
Therefore, they demanded a refund, 
of the money they had paid for this 
service. They also claimed that 
money which should be used for 
remodeling the dorms, landscaping, 
and improving sanitation facilities 
in the cafeteria had been poured 
into the stadium and infirmary. The 
Athletes, they wrote, received 
favoritism in the selection of foods 
in the cafeteria, and upperclassmen 
no longer received upperclass 
privleges. They disapproved of the 
color of the Union, and wanted 
recreation facilities improved, 
among other things. They lodged a 
complaint against the Dept. of 
Housing, and requested a public 
apology from University President 
Dr. Bienvenu. They said they had a 
right to know what was to be done 
concerning their complaints. 

Upon receiving the letter, The 
Current Sauce decided to investigate 
the initial charges. Unfortunately, 
we were unable to interview the 
authors of the letter, as we had 
hoped, since they chose not to sign 
their names. The fact that the letter 
was unsigned was also the reason 
The Current Sauce was unable to 
print it. However, Current Sauce 
feels that all students opinions are 
important, and should be listened 
to, and so we investigated. 

Our first step was to go see for 
ourselves the situation at Varnado. 
Fortunately, the air conditioning 
was in working order when we 
arrived to speak to the house 
director. On being questioned, she 
told us that she had not been ap- 
proached on the problem. She did 
say, however, that for a few days, 
the air conditioning was out of 
order and it had been un- 
comfortable, but the plumbers and 
maintenance men had done 
everything to temporarily correct 
the problem until a faulty part could 
be replaced and a new part ordered. 
A spokesman from the housing 
department said that they had 
received a few phone calls, but that 
the students who phoned were 
satisfied that everything was being 
handled as quickly as possible and 
had had no further complaint. 

Varnado is the oldest standing 
dorm on the NSU campus, and the 
amount of pride and concern shared 
by its residents was recently praised 

by University President Dr. 
Bienvenu. Current Sauce , also 
encourages students to express their 
opinions and concerns on campus 
problems and issues. However, it is 
obvious that Current Sauce cannot 
follow up, investigate, and get 
results on every problem presented 
to us via letters to the editor. But we 
can give you a little insight into how 
to get results to your requests and 
answers to your questions. 

Certainly, it would be fantastic if 
every question could be answered by 
pushing a button and having the 
right answer appear on a computer 
screen, cut and dried. But until the 
world of science technology 
provides NSU with such a com- 
puter, we must rely on the stan- 
dby... channels. 

Accompanying this article is a 
chart showing the various channels 
followed at NSU. The initial 
complaint should be directed to the 
person nearest the problem-those at 
the bottom of the chart. For in-

stance, if a problem or question 
concerning the cafeteria could not 
be resolved by the cafeteria staff 
members, or indeed, by the students 
themselves, then the next step would 
be to take it to the Saga Food 
Service who run the cafeteria. From 
there, you would go to the Director 
of Student Services and then to the 
Dean of Students, and so on. Most 
problems, though, are taken care of 
after the first inquiries.

Tech President named 
commencement speaker 

Dr. F. Jay Taylor, president of 
Louisiana Tech University in 
Ruston, will be the featured speaker 
for Northwestern State University's 
summer commencement exercises 
Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. in NSU Prather 

Taylor, who was appointed as the 
12th president of Louisiana Tech in 
1962, is scheduled to address 262 
candidates for graduate and un- 
dergraduate degrees. 

Northwestern's summer com- 
mencement speaker earned a 
bachelor's degree in social sciences, 
in 1948 at the University of 
California, an institution which 
cited him in 1971 for "outstanding 
achievement" as an alumnus. 

Taylor, who was dean of 
Louisiana College in Pineville 
before accepting the presidency at 
Louisiana Tech, earned a master's 
degree in history at the Claremont 
Graduate School in 1949 and was 
awarded a Ph.D. degree from 
Tulane University in 1952. 

The Louisiana Tech president 
presently serves as chairman of the 
Comrrtittee on National Service of 
the American Association of State 
Colleges and Universities. He is a 
member of the Committee on 

Standards and Reports of the 
Southern Association of Colleges 
and Schools and serves as chairman 
of the National Air Force ROTC 
Advisory Panel. 

Taylor has served as chairman of 
the Louisiana Labor Relations 
Board and has also been chairman 
of the Labor-Management Com- 
mission of Inquiry. An experienced 
labor-management arbitrator, 
Taylor presently is a member of the 
labor panel of the American Ar- 
bitration Association and the 
Federal Mediation and Conciliation 

After receiving the Ph.D. degree, 
Taylor went to Louisiana College as 
an associate professor of history 
and government and dean of men. 
In 1954, he was promoted to 
professor and in 1960 was named 
dean of Louisiana College. 
While at Louisiana College, Taylor

State approves Modern Arts center for NSU 

ASchool of Creative and Per- 
forming Arts has been established 
for NSU and funds have been 
appropriated for a multi-million 
dollar center to accomodate the 
unique program. 

Approved recently by the 
Louisiana Board of Regents for 
Higher Education, the new school at 
Northwestern will include the 
university's departments of art, 
dance, music and theatre. 

Dr. George Stokes, dean of the 
NSU College of Liberal Arts, said 
the innovative academic program 
"will cater to the needs of young 
people across the country who have 
few places to go to be trained as 
professionals in the performing 

Groundbreaking is scheduled this 
fall for a $6.2 million Creative and 
Performing Arts Center on the 
Northwestern campus, and com- 
pletion of the facility is anticipated 
for 1981. 

The modernistic center includes 
the complete renovation of the 
university's A. A. Fredericks Fine 
Arts Building and the construction 
of additional facilities to allow 
interaction of music, art, dance and 
theatre academic programs and ac- 

Stokes said, "The Creative and 

Performing Arts Center will not 
only be one of the most modernistic 
and comprehensive educational 
facilities in the nation but will also 
serve as a cultural center for this 
section of Louisiana." 

The Northwestern dean said the 
new School of Creative and Per- 
forming Arts wi-1 "provide an 
atmosphere of creative excitement, 
stimulation and curiosity evoked by 
the close association and mutual 
support of the different kinds of 

Dr. T. P. Southerland, vice- 
president of academic affairs at 
Northwestern, said the school will 

allow young people in Louisiana to 
remain in the state to receive 
academic training and experience to 
become professional performing 

Southerland , said,, "This new 
structure should enhance recruit- 
ment of outstanding students from 
across the nation who want to work 
in their own field of arts while being 
closely associated with students who 
have professional interests in other 
areas of the fine arts." 

The academic vice-president 
pointed out that establishment of 
the new school will also provide for 
expansion of degree programs 
currently offered by the university 
in the fine arts area. 

Stokes stated that the university is 
now searching for a director to 
administer the new school, which 
will come under the supervision of 
the College of Liberal Arts. 

The liberal arts dean said the 
creation of the new school and the 
completion of the Creative and 
Performing Arts Center will allow 
Northwestern "to better fulfill its 
responsibility for the teaching and 
perservation of the arts in this part 
of Louisiana." 

He added, "Indeed, our overiew 
of this region has revealed to us no 
other organization or facility even 
remotely capable of matching our 
potential in this important func-

Stand Up I 


One of the biggest problems we 
face, not only here at Northwestern 
but also across America, is that 
there are not enough people willing 
to stand up and get involved. 
People will mutter, grumble and 
gripe about something they don't 
like, but too often they won't take 
any positive steps towards changing 

Nationwide, we hear complaints 
that gas is too highly priced and too 
hard to find, but still we see too 
many people driving around town 
just to see what's happening, and 
not enough people walking short 
distances or using mass transit. 

On campus, we always seem to 
hear complaints about the SGA, the 
SUGB, the Current Sauce , and 
other student-operated institutions. 
The SGA, people say, is run by a 
small clique of persons who cater to 
their own interests. Right— the SGA 
is run by a small "clique" but only 
because they are the people willing 
to sacrifice their time and energy to 
see what they can do to make NSU a 
better place. Too many students 
just sit and complain, rather than 
trying to change something with a 
united movement. The current 18- 
member SGA was selected from a 
field of 25 candidates, and was 
voted on by only 661 students. Four 
of the five SGA executive officers 
were unopposed this spring, which 
is really not as surprising news as it 
should be, since four of the five 
1978-79 execs also stepped into 
office without opposition. 

Sure, it is an isolated, small group 
of people that makes up NSU's 
student government— but it doesn't 
have to be that way. 

If some of the students who 
always seem to have some opinion 
to offer about how they would "do 
^ it" would actually go ahead and 
"do it" by getting involved, NSU 
would be a better place— for 

We all gripe about our cafeteria 
food, about our roads, and about 
our housing problems-but how 
many of us actually go the extra 
mile and file a formal protest with 
the proper agency? What is the 
"proper agency"? More often then 
not, a letter to Student Services will 
get you a prompt answer. Or, if for 
some reason you don't want to get 
personally involved, a letter or a 
visit to the SGA offices in the Union 
will do the trick. 

"Why" you ask me,"are you up 
in the pulpit preaching?" Mainly 
because last week we received two 
very interesting letters to the 
Sauce • One, a "mere" three 
handwritten pages long,' was an 
indictment of the Inside View 
orientation program. Titled 'In- 

coming Babies, it made some valid 
points and id a good job of sun> 
marizing many of the arguments of 
those who are against Inside View. 
The second letter, like the first, 
pulled no punches. Seven hand- 
written pages were filled with some 
provocative allegations against 
NSU. There was much discussion 
of the Varnado Dorm con- 
troversy(the apparent lack of air 
conditioning and repair work), the 
lack of Infirmary hours convenient 
for all students, the lack of school 
spirit (except among the local wall 
painters), and much more. The best 
aspect of both these letters seemed 
to me to be that even though they 
were filled with complaints, the 
authors had a positive attitude (at 
least, a hopeful attitude) toward 
solving the problems they men- 

The second letter especially had 
an optimistic tone. . .quoting 
now. .."There are a lot of students 
waiting for this letter to be printed. 
It is lengthy but it concerns every 
student on campus and is not some 
small controversy. Response from 
the administration is welcome. We 
hope that they. ..can let us know 
who to thank for all the things we 
do have to appreciate, and prove us 
wrong on some of our allegations." 

Now you want to know why these 
letters aren't sitting right next door 
in ExtraSauce. Well, there is a very 
simple answer— neither letter was 
signed. The authors did not want to 
stand up for what they said, either 
we assume because of fear of 
ridicule or reprisal. We would have 
been more than happy to print the 
letters. ..if they had been signed. 
The authors could have requested 
that we withhold their names, and 
we would have. If someone from the 
administration or the SGA or 
anyone at all wanted to know who 
wrote the letters, I wouldn't tell 
them. What I would do is contact 
the author and ask him if he would 
be interested in a meeting with the 
concerned party. If not, that would 
be the end of it. There is no way" 
thai any party could force the Sauce 
to reveal the identity of the writer, 
legally or otherwise. 

So, what about the two letters? 
Will you ever see them in the Sauce? 
It is entirely up to the authors, 
whomever they may be. If they 
really want their letters published, 
they will have to write another letter 
that will convince me that they 
really did write the first one. If they 
can prove authentic knowledge of 
the contents of the first letter, and 
will sign their name this time, we 
will print 'em. And, we will even 
withhold their names. ..upon 
request, just like it says down below 
in the fine print in the staff box.

Governor's race- shaping up

In this election year, Louisianians 
will turn out to vote for a new 
governor as well as other state and 
local offices. 

The present state executive, 
Governor Edwin Edwards, will not 
run for the governor's office again 
as he has served two terms in the 
office and is not allowed to return 
this next term. 

There are a variety of candidates 
and a variety of issues facing the 
people of Louisiana in the 1979 
Gubernatorial election race. The 
announced candidates are 
Congressman David Treen, 
Secretary of State Paul Hardy, 
Senator Edgar Mouton, State 
Representative E.L. "Bubba" 
Henry, and Lieutenant Governor 
Jimmy Fitzmorris, and Chairman of 
the Public Services Committee, 
Louis Lambert. 

Treen, Congressman from the 3rd 
Congressional District, is no 
stranger to the race for the 
governorship. He had an impressive 
showing in the 1972 race finishing 
with 42.8 percent of the vote. This 
is the highest vote for governor any 
Republican has received in the 20th 
century. From Metairie, Treen 
hopes to instill "a spirit of 
achievement, cooperation and 
tolerance" to all Louisianians. 

Paul Hardy, Secretary of State, 
has also served as senator from 
1971-76. Hardy was elected 
secretary of the state as the youngest 
elected man to hold that position in 
the United States. 

House Speaker E.L. "Bubba" 
Henry chose the chief issue of his 
campaign to be public education. 
The Jonesboro native also em- 
phasizes the need for comprehensive 
approaches for solving the state's 

Mouton and Fitzmorris have both 
had long careers in Louisiana 

Jimmy Fitzmorris, Louisiana's 
Lieutenant Governor, has served on 
many government committees 
acting'on the state's behalf. 

Mouton, a mainstay in the state's 
politics, has been a candidate for 
governor prior to this campaign. 
Mouton has worked deligently for 
medical care for children. 

Louis Lambert, a native of 
DeRidder, is presently serving as 
chairman of the Public Services 
Committee of the state. 

Issues, too, will be a main driving 
force in this year's election. As in 
national politics, stands on issues 
have become reasons for being 
elected rather than the candidate's 
party affiliation or personality. 

Education and the quality of 
education have become vital issues 
for this year's election. With recent 
low test scores from statewide 
teachers, it is apparent that 
something must be done. The 
importance of the issue is seen in the 
dedication that Bubba Henry places 
on public education as the primary 
issue in his campaign. 

Public Roads and highways are a 
major topic in this year's election 
also. Building and repair of the 
state's roadways have long been 


Dear Editor,

We all suffered through the heat, 
wore our ragged cutoffs, and 
burned at the Complex. Together 
we acted out the antics of college life 
and had our fun. 

For many the tests were hard, the 
teachers demanding-didn't they 
KNOW there were only sixteen 
waking hours in the day, and 
fourteen of them were meant for the 
necessities of life (you know,

The controversies raged— Inside 
View— was inspected, dissected, and 
thoroughly scrutinized. Students 
cursed the roads, cafeteria food, 
and Varnado heat. Cancelled classes 
were a nuisance we all had to live 

Now it is the week before finals 
and we're almost through. 

Sometimes it is hard, but wasn't it 
also fun? We laughed together, we 
cried together-the two thousand or 
so of us w ho stuck it out here during 
the summer months grew together. 
We have made a semester work; for 
you, for me, for all of us. 

Some of us will be departing from 
the campus after the semester- 
going on to face bigger and better 
things. Others of us will return in 
September to confront those dusty 
chalkboard lectures and manned

promises of politicians but this has 
not been sufficiently done to the 
satisfaction of the state's residents. 

Northwestern students should 
also consider these decisions facing 
today's voters. Besides the obvious 
reference to education, the students 
will one day be the adults who will 
choose candidates and make issues 
important and popular. Students 
will be affected by decisions made 
by today's politicians. 

Even so, many NSU students 
were not informed and had not 
made an attempt to find out about 
this year's election and the can- 
didates available. 

Those informed, though, had 
these comments: 

Peggy Threatt, a sophomore from 
Leesville, chooses Paul Hardy 
because "of his stand on en- 
vironmental issues, how he relates 
to people". Ms. Threatt adds that 
Hardy "shows responsibility with 
his family so he probably will show 
responsibility with his work as 

A freshman from DeRidder, Ray 
Harrington is going to vote for Dave 
Treen. "He seems different from 
the other candidates because he 
doesn't make a lot of empty 
promises. He also seems to be very 
sincere in his concern for the state 
and for its residents." 

Natchitoches graduate student, 
Barbara Nugent says her vote will 
go to David Treen. She has several 
reasons: "He has proven ablility in 

the House of Representatives in 
Congress and I would like to see the 
Republican party become a more 
viable force in Louisiana politics. 
We need a competitive two-party 

Colleen Claire Cook, a junior 
from New Orleans, says "my first 
response is David Treen but I am 
really still looking over the 

Linda Venson, a 4-2 student, is 
for Jimmy Fitzmorris because he is 
going to offer more jobs for the 

Mary Christophe, a Natchez 
freshman, says she will vote for 
Paul Hardy. Ms. Christophe says 
"he seems sincere and he really 
cares about the people. His com- 
mercials give the idea that he is a 
real family man and an up and 
coming leader of Louisiana." 

A graduate student from Nat- 
chitoches, Jackie Leon is for Paul 
Hardy because she sees him as 
standing for the right things. 

Louis Lambert gets the vote of 
Felicia Pitts because he makes a lot 
of sense and she thinks he could 
straighten out the government in 
Baton Rouge. 

Malinda Wyatt, a sophomore 
from Marthaville, says her vote will 
go to Paul Hardy. She adds, "His

An informal open house 
at Bayou Folk Museum in 
Cloutierville will be held 
Sunday, July 29, to honor 
Northwestern as the new 
owner of one of the 
country's historic land- 

The open house program, 
sponsored by the Bayou 
Folk Homemakers Club, 
will be held from 3 p.m. to 
5 p.m. 

"This will be an op- 
portunity for the people of 
Natchitoches, Natchitoches 
Parish and the rest of the 
state to become acquainted 
with the progress that has 
been made in the 
restoration of this great 
museum," said Mrs. 
Lawrence Dalme Jr., 
president of the Bayou Folk 
Homemakers Club. 




Each year, the NSU 
student body is always 
turning up new talent and 
promise. This year is no 
exception. NSU student, 
Kathy Jones recently 
became a celebrity when she 
became crowned the first 
Miss Black Universe of 
Louisiana. The Pagaent is 
held in conjunction with the 
Ark-La-Tex Trade Fair. 
Kathy was one of 35 
contestants being judged on 
beauty, talent and poise. In 
the talent competition, 
Kathy impressed the judges 
with her dramatic in- 
terpretation of the speeches 
of Dr. Martin Luther King. 
Along with the title, Kathy 
received a $ 1 ,000 
scholarship which she plans 
to use to further her studies 
in political science and 

Kathy is a 20 year old 
student and Junior at NSU. 
She is a member of Alpha 
Kappa Alpha, Sigma Delta 
Ki, and she is a former 
Alpha Angel and Cane 
River Belle. Presently, she 
is interning in journalism at 
the Natchitoches Chamber 
of Commerce as an Ad- 
vertising Specialist. Kathy 
says she's looking forward 
to future competition, and 
feels that from her pagaent 
experience, she's learned a 
lot about being and 
communicating with other 
people. Kathy will travel to 
New York on August 10-27 
for the Miss Black Universe 

Bayou Folk Museum is 
the famous two-story, 
hand-made brick house in 
Cloutierville where Kate 
CHopin collected material 
for some of her most im- 
portant literary works 
during the late 1800's. 

The museum, which was 
designated as a Louisiana 
landmark in 1970 and 
entered on the National 
Register of Historic Places 
in 1974, was donated to 
NSU earlier this year by 
Mildred McCoy of 
Cloutierville and her son, 
Kenneth D. McCoy Jr., and 
his wife, Rosie Alford 
McCoy of Natchitoches. 

Mildred McCoy pur- 
chased the home in 1964. 
She began restoring and 
furnishing the old Kate 
Chopin home the way it 

looked when Miss Chopin 
went to Cloutierville in 
1879. The home was opened 
as a museum on Aug. 1, 
1965, and was re-opened by 
Northwestern in March of 
this year. 

In addition to being 
available to tourists, Bayou 
Folk Museum is being 
utilized by Northwestern in 
programs developed in 
NSU's history department 
and the university's new 
archives curriculum. 

The museum, which for 
years has been a leading 
tourist attraction, has also 
enhanced the work of 
NSU's faculty and students 
who are conducting 
research in the areas of 
folklore and anthropology.

Former Demon standouts 
head to NFL camps 

Northwestern's football program 
is well represented in the National 
Football League's professional 
camps this summer, with several 
former Demonsters reporting for 
pre-season workouts this week. 

A total of six former NSU 
players, four of them who finished 
their Northwestern career last 
season, reported to five different 
NFL camps this week after working 
out as a group for the past several 
weeks on the campus. 

Sidney "Thunder" Thornton is 
the most experienced veteran of the 
group, as the 5-foot-ll, 234 pound 
fullback from Baton Rouge will be 
returning for his third season as a 
member of the world champion 
Pittsburgh Steelers. Thornton was 
the third leading rusher for last 
year's Super Bowl winners. 

He'll be joined in camp by 
another former Demon, rookie wide 
receiver Mike Almond. Almond, a 
6-foot-2 190 pounder from Bossier 
City, was the very last player 
selected in this year's NFL draft and 
recently signed a contract just 
before reporting to the Pittsburgh 

NSU's highest draft selection this 
year, offensive guard Petey Perot, is 
already in the camp of the 
Philadelphia Eagles. The 6 foot 3 
one half, 255 pound Perot, a second 
round selection of the Eagles, was 
the highest pick in NSU football 

The other two members of last 
year's 5-6 Northwestern squad 
currently in pro camps are defensive 
tackle Willie Washington and tight 
end Pat Collins, Washington, a 6- 
foot-4 260 pounder from 
Shreveport, signed a free agent 
contract with the Atlanta Falcons 

and is currently in the Falcon's 
rookie camp, and Collins, a 6-foot-3 
228 pounder was invited back to the 
Dallas Cowboys' rookie camp after 
making an impressive showing in a 
tryout session. 

In addition to those mentioned, 
former NSU standout defensive 
back Tommie Ray Braden recently 
signed a free agent contract with the 
Detroit Lions, Braden, a six foot 
190 pounder from Natchitoches, 
had been on the taxi squad of the 
New Orleans Saints for the past 


Of course, NSU gradual, 
assistant Joe Ferguson is also 
camp as the Buffalo Bills open they \ 
camp Sunday. Ferguson will be in 
his seventh season as quarterback of 
the Bills. 

"This is the most people we've 
ever had in pro ball at the samX 
time," said NSU head coach A.L. 
Williams. "I know they will do an 
outstanding job and will represent 
both the school and the area very 

Acuna wins medal, 
turns professional 

Ricardo Acuna will make the 
biggest step in his spectacular tennis 
career in the very near future, and 
that step will come right on the heels 
of another of his many noteworthy 

Acuna, who completed his 
collegiate tennis career at Nor- 
thwestern only a few weeks ago, has 
declared himself a professional and 
will compete in his first tournament 
as a pro in Brazil within the next few 
days. That announcement followed 
his outstanding performance in the 
just-completed Pan American 
Games in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

Acuna, representing his native 
Chile, advanced all the way to the 
finals of the hemispheric Olympics 
singles competition before losing to 
Mel Purcell of the United States 7-5, 

6-4 in the finals. Purcell, a former 
Memphis State star who has been on 
the tournament circuit for a year, is 
the country's top-ranked 21-and- 
under player. 

"I'm not surprised by anything 
Ricardo does," said NSU tennis 
coach Johnnie Emmons. "He keeps 
getting better and better, and I feel 
he will be one of the top 
professionals in the game in a 
couple of years." 

Acuna, who was an Ail-American 
last year and reached the round of 
16 in the NCAA national cham- 
pionships in June, was one of three 
players chosen to represent Chile in 
the Pan American Games, which 
featured the top amateur athletes 
from across North and South 

KA Boxing Tourney nets $2,400 

Northwestern's Kappa Alpha 
Order, has presented the national 
Muscular Dystrophy Association a 
$2,400 donation of proceeds from 
the fraternity's annual boxing 

Fraternity members Kevin 
Chatelain of Metairie and Clifford 
Rowzee of Leesville made the 
presentation this week to Norman 
Moore of Shreveport, director of 
the North Louisiana Regional 
Office of the National Muscular D- 
ystrophy Association. 

"Kappa Alpha at Northwestern 

continues to do tremendous things 
for muscular dystrophy," said 
Moore. "They bring more money to 
us each year. This shows that 
Northwestern puts on one of the 
best boxing shows for charity in the 

Moore, whose organization has 
benefitted from the tournament for 
the past five years, said Kappa 
Alpha Order of Northwestern will 
be given prime time exposure this 
year during the aual telecast of the 
"Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon" 
for muscular dystrophy. 

Chatelain, who directed this 
year's tournament, said that in five 
years of sponsoring the boxing show 
to benefit muscular dystrophy the 
fraternity has donated to MDA 
more than $6 000. 

"We could have used the tour- 
nament to raise money for other 
projects, such as repairing the 
fraternity house, but working for 
this particular charity has been a 
satisfying and very enriching ex- 
perience for each member of our 
organization," said Chatelain. 

Two baseballers ink with Northwestern 

Two of Texarkana's top 
high school and American 
Legion baseball players, 
Jeff Misenheimer and Brent 
Trimble, have signed 
baseball scholarships to 
attend Northwestern. 

The signing of 
Misenheimer and Trimble 
was announced this week by 
NSU head baseball coach 
Herbie Smith. The two are 
Northwestern's third and 
fourth baseball signess of 

the season. 

Misenheimer was a three 
year letterman at first base 
for Texas High School in 
Texarkana, while Trimble 
was a four year letterman 
and three year starter as a 
pitcher at Liberty High in 
Texarkana. Both are 
playing for the Indians of 
Texarkana's American 
Legion program this 
summer under coach Jim

Hot Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
President Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
have a question, comment, com- 
plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(Room 225A in Keyser Hall) and 
we'll pass it along to Dr. Bienvenu. 

The best of summer... 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: Now that you 
have had the grading system of NSU 
changed so that classes being 
repeated are averaged with the 
previous class grade, please answer 
these questions-How will a B' and 
an 'F' be averaged, and how will a 
'D' and an 'F be averaged? Will 
the person receive the next higher 
grade since a .5 is halfway? 

A. There seems to be some 
misunderstanding about the 
computation of grade averages in 
the cases of courses being repeated. 
The original letter grade does not 
enter into the averaging system, but 
the hour value of the courses is 
considered. For example: If a three 
(3) hour course was repeated, then 
the grade obtained upon repeating 
the course is the letter grade used in 
determining the number of quality 
points earned. Those quality points 
would then be divided by the total 
hours, in this case six (6) resulting 
from repeating the course. This 
system is used by practically all 
academically superior universities in 
ihe country. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: Several of us 
were very disappointed to find out 
we only have nine football games. 
With the first class facilities Nor- 
thwestern possesses, why can't the 
football team schedule more than 
nine games when just about all the 
other state schools have eleven? We 
were very impressed with the first 
c/nsf, basketball schedule, with NSU 
facing two of the best teams in the 
country, but how about two more 
football games? 

They really mean it when they tell you that "it 
is better to give than to receive," at 
registration. Or at least it seems that way, 
since students almost always end up on the 
giving side of things. But not everyone is so 


unfortunate, as this unidentified co-ed will 
attest. She was a little surprised to be 
collecting, not spending money, (staff photo 
by Dennis Tyler).

Sauce Editor 

The first elections of the Fall '79 
semester have been scheduled for 
Wednesday, Sept. 19, Student 
Government Association Com- 
missioner of Elections Rick Dubois 
announced last week. 

Ten SGA Class Senator positions 
are open and will be contested, and 
the 1979 NSU Homecoming Court 
will also be picked in the election. 

Dubois said that filings and 
nominations in both races will be 
accepted through next Wednesday, 
Sept. 5. Notice of intentions for the 
election can be picked up in either 
room 222 or room 309 of the 
Student Union Building, and should 
be returned to the SGA offices in 
room 222 before the deadline. 

Also on the ballot will be a $1.00 
fee increase proposal for the 
Current Sauce. Presently, the 
student newspaper receives $2.00 
per full-time student each semester. 
The paper's fees have not been 
1 raised since 1975, and due primarily 
to dramatic increases in printing and 
publishing costs, the Sauce has been 
operating on or near a deficit budget 
for most of the past three years.

Sauce News Editor 

After years of grumbling by NSU 
students of having to continuously 
eat in the Iberville dining hall and 
having to pay for meals that they 
don't eat, NSU has finally in- 
troduced a new food service 
program this semester. 

A new variable plan is going into 
effect this semester, allowing both 
campus residents and NSU com- 
muters and faculty-staff to eat at 
not only the Iberville dining hall, 
but also at the Student Union 
cafeteria and the Recreation 
Complex snack bar. 

This new meal service plan, which 
is unique among Louisiana colleges 
and universities, will give students 
the opportunity of purchasing three 
options in the variable plan or allow 
them to stick with the old five-day 
or seven-day meal plan. 

The variable meal plan allows 
students to purchase a $380 meal 
ticket (which will actually purchase 
$418 worth of food), a $100 meal 
ticket (which buys $109 worth of 
food), and a $50 meal ticket (which 
will buy $54 worth of food). 

On-campus students will have to 
purchase either a $380 variable meal 
ticket, the usual $340 seven-day 
ticket or the $320 five-day ticket. 
The $100 and $50 variable meal 
plans are designed for the com- 
muters and faculty-staff. 

The seven and five day tickets will 
be utilized as in the past, students 
only eating in the Iberville dining 
hall and paying for three meals a 

day, whether they eat them or not. 

The variable plan will give the 
students much more fredom of 
choice, since it allows them to eat 
when they want to and at their 
choice of the dining hall, Student 
Union cafeteria and the Recreation 
Complex snack bar. 

The $380 variable ticket will be 
issued io students in approximately 
$104 increments four times a 
semester. The first will be issued 
upon registration, the other three 
tickets are issued by the dining hall 
at approximately 30 day intervals or 
sooner if needed. 

There are no refunds on the 
variable meal tickets like there are 
on the five and seven day tickets 
since the variable tickets are 
transferable and can be used by 
whoever has it in their possession. 

"The tickets are like having $418 
in your pocket," said Dean of 
Students, Fred Bosarge. According 
to Bosarge, the students can eat 
when they want and if they want, 
can spend the whole ticket in one 
day. "They are not charged for 
meals they don't eat on the variable 
plan," stated Bosarge. 

"One thing the students on the 
variable plan has to be careful about 
is that he doesn't spend all his 
money on his ticket too soon and 
doesn't have enough left to eat on 
for the rest of the semester," said 

A problem arose on the first day 
of classes with students on the $380 
variable plan realizing that if they 
were to eat in Iberville dining hall 

seven days a week, they would run 
out of money on their ticket about 
the third week of every month. 

According to Bosarge, students 
on the variable plan are charged at a 
rate between the guest rate and the 
five and seven day plan rate. Ac- 
cording to Bosarge, the variable 
rates at Iberville are a quarter off 
the guest rates. Iberville rates for" 
students on the variable plan are as 
follows: Breakfast - $1.50, Lunch - 
$2, Supper - $2.50, steak night or 
special events - $3. 

"We have found out that many 
people who decided on the variable 
plan really wanted to eat in Iberville 
dining hall seven days a week, but 
wanted the variable plan for con- 
venience," commented Bosarge. 

Many students complained of 
another problem with the variable 
plan. According to Bosarge, the 
meal tickets were computed down to 

a quarter. Bosarge explained that if 
a person bought $1.35 worth of 
food, he would only be charged 
$1.25 on his card. If he bought 
$1.40 worth of food, he would be 
charged $1.50 on his ticket. Food 
service employees would have to 
round up or round down the 
amount of food purchased. 

fvtany students complained that 
food service employees were only 
rounding up and not down. Ac- 
cording to Bosarge, food service 
employees will be instructed to 
correctly round down or up when 

With the new implementation of 
the meal plan, the Student Union 
cafeteria will have to begin having 
longer hours and will soon even be 
open on Saturdays and Sundays. 
"We can't tell the students that they 
can eat somewhere and close the 
place on them," said Bosarge.

SGa President Terry McCarty 
sponsored a bill in last night's SGA 
meeting that asked for the Sauce fee 
increase proposal to be placed on 
the ballot for this election, and the 
group okayed his action. The bill 
read as follows: 

WHEREAS, the Current Sauce is 

operating on a deficit budget, 
WHEREAS, publishing and 
printing costs have increased 
dramatically since 1975, and 
WHEREAS, the Current Sauce is 
NSU's student newspaper and 
provides valuable means of in- 
formation to not only NSU students 
but also the community, area, and 
state, and future students as well. 

RESOLVED that the NSU full-time 
students be assessed an additional 
fee of $1.00 for Current Sauce 
beginning the Spring of 1980. 

Sauce Business Manager Karen 
Carr said, "With the tremendous 
jump since 1975 of almost every 
commodity, the publishing and 
printing costs for the paper have 
skyrocketed to the point where it is 
impossible to continue to keep the 
Sauce out of te ed with the present 
budget, which is supported directly 
by the student fee. 

"Unless we get a fee increase 
now, we will not be able to maintain 
the level of quality which the 
students deserve for their money," 
she said. "Major cutbacks in the 
present budget are impossible now. 
We've trimmed all our nonessential 
expenses and still face this financial 
crisis. The staff is having to gel 
along without much of the necessary 
equipment and supplies, such as 
photography paper and chemicals, 
so that we can meet these printing 
and publishing costs," Carr ex-

Lecture series set 

Homecoming activities 
scheduled by President 



Homecoming activities to 
celebrate Northwestern State 
University's 95th year as a 
progressive leader in Louisiana 
higher education were announced 
last wek by NSU president Dr. Rene 
J. Bienvenu. 

The fall Homecoming program 
includes a campus-wide banner 
display, a parade, pep rally and 
street dance on Sept. 28 and will be 
highlighted by the Sept. 29 football 
game between NSU and Northeast 
Louisiana University at 7:30 p.m. in 
Harry "Rags" Turpin Stadium. 

Dr. Bienvenu emphatically in- 
sisted that all campus groups and 
residence halls participate in the 
Homecoming banner display and 
parade. "I want to see every 
building used by students and every 
dorm with some type of banner or 
sign. It doesn't have to involve any 
large expenditure of money on 
anyone's part, just a little bit of 
effort, to get the campus filled with 
banners and signs supporting the 
Demons. Even a little sheet hanging 
from an office in an academic 
building will help in increasing our 
school spirit and will let the team 

know that we are behind them all 
the way.'-' 

The banner parade will leave the 
NSU campus at 6:15 p.m. enroute 
to the Natchitoches riverfront. A 
pep rally and street dance will 
follow the parade. 

Homecoming activities for 
Saturday, Sept. 29, begin with

and Alumni Association as well as 
the Booster Club. These morning 
sessions will be conducted in 
Northwestern's new multi-million 
dollar athletic field house.

On-campus housing up 

Improved dorms are full 

by Kathv Harrington 
Campus Editor 

After some years of sagging on- 
campus housing registration for 
Northwestern, this fall's on-campus 
housing situation has apparently 

In a dorm to dorm survey, it was 
found that the housing facilities on 
the Northwestern campus in 
Natchitoches are very near full. In 
Louisiana dormitory, the capacity is 
filled v/ith 180 students. Sabine is 
also very near filled to capacity. 
There was even an initial overflow 
of 44 girls living in Caddo but the 
students there have since been re- 
assigned to rooms in other dor- 

A slight increase in on-campus 
dormitory usage was noted by 
Becky Brown, Co-ordinator of 
Housing. On the Natchitoches 
campus, Brown estimates 1650 
students living in dormitories with 
an additional 88 living on-campus 
on the Shreveport Nursing facility. 
This is a slight growth from the 
spring semester and from the fall of 
1978 when about 1575 students 
resided in Northwestern dor- 
mitories. These are only estimated 
figures taken from an opening day 
count but tallying of the number of 
walk-ons and no shows will present 
more precise figures which will be 
published later. 

Appoximately 400 freshmen are 
residing in the dormitories this fall, 
according to Brown. 

Brown took over the position of 
Co-ordinator of Housing on July 1 . 
She says, "Taking over the job since 
July 1, I will try to improve the 
dormitories and will try making 
them a better place for the students 
to live." Brown is encouraged by 
the increase in dormitory use by the 
students since that is what they are 
here for. She also stated that she 
enjoyed working at her "first real 
job" and wanted to help make 
Northwestern a better university. 

Two dormitories in the Nat- 
chitoches campus are closed for the 
fall semester. They are Bossier Hall 
and Prudhomme Hall. Caddo Hall 
will be closed after its 44 overflow 
students are reassigned rooms. 

Many renovations have been 
made and will be made on the 
campus dormitories. 

Louisiana Hall was renovated 
during the summer. The dormitory 
lobbv received new furniture and 
new curtains were placed in the 

Sabine Hall's north wing had 
some rooms painted and leaking 
showers were repaird over the 

Caddo Doritory is closed for the 
fall and renovations will be made. 
It is expected that Caddo Hall will 
be transformed into quarters for 
married students. 

Numerous complaints were 

received during the summer session 
concerning the lack of operational 
air-conditioning for Northwestern's 
oldest standing dormitory, Varnado 
Hall. Ms. Brown, who resided in an 
apartment in Vernado Hall during 
the summer, said the air- 
conditioning was not out as much as 
it was said. "Some units may have 
been on the blink," she said but 
never the whole dormitory. The air- 
conditioning remains in good 
w orking condition. 

Other renovations are scheduled 
for Varnado Hall. The lobby is 
being renovated in particular. New 
carpet and furniture are planned for 
the co-educational dormitory.

MD Telethon again slated here 

The Natchitoches Area Jaycees, 
Westside Baptist Church's WSBC— 
TV Channel 9 and the Muscular 
Dystrophy Association will once 
again join forces Labor Day 
Weekend to bring the annual Jerry 
Lewis Labor Day Telethon to the 
Natchitoches area. 

Rodney Harrington, Jaycee 
chairman of the event, said that the 
telethon to raise money for the 
Muscular Dystrophy Association 
would be aired for 22 non-stop 
hours on Sunday and Monday, 
Sept. 2-3 over WSBC-TV. He said 
the pledge center telephone number 
would be 352-5573. 

The Natchitoches Area Jaycees 
will be manning a pledge center in 
the gymnasium area of the 
Assembly of God Church (formerly 
Westside Baptist Church) for the 
entire duration of the Telethon, 
which will originate live from 
Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nev. 

Harrington said that 45 minutes 
of each hour will feature en- 
tertainment from Las Vegas with 
Jerry Lewis in his 15th year as host 
of the largest single humanitarian 
project of its kind in the world. The 
remaining 15 minutes of each hour 
will originate live from the pledge 
center over WSBC— TV with local 
entertainment and pledges. 

"We're hoping to top our goal of 
raising $12,000 during the 
Telethon," Harrington said, "and 
we feel that we will reach this goal 
because of the generosity shown by 

the people of the Natchitoches area 
over the past years." 

Last year's Telethon raised a total 
of $11,524 for the fight against 
muscular dystrophy and related 
neuromuscular diseases. The 
amount raised locally has increased 
each year since the Jaycees and 
WSBC— TV joined forces on the 

Variable plan 

The Recreation Complex snack 
bar is still seasonal in operation. 
When the complex is closed, the 
snack bar will be closed. "As we 
begin to develop the complex more, 
it will probably stay open longer, so 
the snack bar will also," stated 

According to Bosarge, the new 
meal plan has come after con- 
siderable study and work by the 
administration. "The university 
insisted on a big-league operation," 
commented Bosarge, "Box En- 
terprises, a locas company, has been 
contracted for the food service 
plans. We wanted people with 
experience and our specifications 
for the plan made a 25 page 

Bosarge states that five managers 
will be used in the new plan. "We 
have a General Manager, an 
Iberville Manager, a Student Union 
Manager, a Catering Manager, and 
an Assistant-Manager for the 
Recreation Complex." 

A Food Service Advisory 


The telethon is scheduled to begin 
at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2 and 
will continue through 6 p.m. on 
Labor Day, Sept. 3, and Jaycees 
and other community members wi 
be answering pledge phones during 
the entire 22 hours.

Registration always draws a crowd 

Registration is the curse of every 
college student. There is no worse 
way to begin a college semester than 
to struggle,' with a class schedule, 
slug it out for class cards, stand in 
line with no idea of what you are in 
line for, and then sign your life's 
savings over to a university in hopes 
that an education will be gained. 

The horror begins when you pre- 
register under the everwatchful eye 
of your advisor as you try to sneak 
this class by or that class by. 

The tension mounts as you head 
toward the Coliseum and into the 
Den that few return from as the 
same innocent characters they went 
in as. You get there and there is a 
line so you join it. Eventually you 




get inside and start your scramble 
for class cards. Fighting off com- 
petitors, you get enough cards to 
satisfy the requirement and you're 
off again. 

Then getting a signature here and 
a signature there, you now leave the 
inner area sure that it is almost over. 

But then you find a line which 
you stand in forever and then find 
out you didn't need the line anyway. 

Then you run into a familiar 
sight: the fiddler-you know, you 
always have to pay the fiddler , this 
time it is in the form of the cashier. 
You sign over all your life's savings 
and then some more. After you dry 
your tears and brush your hair, it's 


candid camera time! 

You smile at the camera, not 
because the photographer tell you 
to, but because you have visions of 

You then leave the Coliseum w ith 
a big sigh of relief. 

On the outside though, you notice 
a difference. People look at you 
with a lot of amazement and envy. 
All of a sudden, you are overcome 
with pride at the accomplishment 
you have achieved this warm day. 
You pick your chin up and walk a 
lot taller as you head toward home. 
Then it hits you... now I have to buy 

What now?

A Step Ahead 

What kind of people 
take Army ROTC? 

They're all kinds of people, from all 
walks of life, with all kinds of interests. Music, 
sports, engineering, and almost every 
academic major. 

Their reasons for taking Army ROTC 
are as diverse as they are themselves. 

Some want the personal benefits they'll 
get from a pure leadership course. Others 
want the experience they'll get from serving 
as an Army officer, and the headstart it will 

Johnny Shoptaugh 

give them in a civilian career. 

Some can use the extra $100 a month 
they'll get for up to 20 months during the 
Advanced Course. Others just like the physical 
and mental challenge. 

What kind of people take Army ROTC? 
People who want to get everything they can 
out of their college years. People like you. 

Army ROTC. The more you l<x>k at it, 
the better it looks.

rship inciting summer issues of the Current 
> skil|^ juce, here's review of the top news 
ainingj pries: 

ireasas A new summer orientation program 
raining (lied Inside View began this past 
jurnmer. The program was designed to 
• v 'duaUake tne transition from high school to 
ster n's ollege easier, for incoming freshman, 
washer 300 students participated in the three 
its ssions. 

The freshmen were treated to a series of 
units ictures, tours, and counseling sessions. 
vw «fcjhe students were also offered the op- 
umnieMortunity to pre-register for the fall 
at Fi ; Jrnester. 

The program familiarized the students 
arnp'akh the campus and everything that NSU 
awarded Natchitoches have to offer. 
Pamela tAs always, NSU played host to 
Rouge; umerous camps during the summer, 
son qf; housands of high school students fo- 
lded the campus for various programs, 
nilitarjf jnong the camps were cheerleader,

...Here at NSU 



to name a few . 

The NSU College of Liberal Arts was 
the recipient of a sizeable outlay for the 
construction of a Creative and Per- 
forming Arts Center. The S6.2 million 
construction job will include complete 
renovation of A. A. Fredericks Fine Arts 
Building plus construction of additional 
facilities to allow interaction of music, 
art, dance, and theater academic 
programs and activities. 

Varnado Dorm became the hottest 
place to be on campus. The air con- 
ditioning unit broke down and could not 
be repaired due to a lack of parts. The 
much-needed parts were not available 
because of a strike at the plant. The 
broken unit became the center of a small 
controversy as many of the residents 
became dissatisfied with the ad- 
ministration's answers. The issue was 
settled by the ending of the summer term. 

Northwestern students were upset by 
the release of the 1979 football schedule 
which features only three home games. 
As a consolation, the Demons do have 
one more home game but it is 70 miles 
away. NSU is the designated home team 
in the annual State Fair Classic. 

Four 1978 Demons made their way to 
the pro football camps. Mike Almond, 
Willie Washington, and Pat Collins were 
cut, but big guard-tackle Petey Perot is 
still with the Pheladelphia Eagles. Perot 
was a second round draft choice. 

Almond received an award from a 
California group for having the dubious 
distinction of being the last man chosen in 
the pro football draft. He was chosen in 
the 12th round by the world champion 
Pittsburgh Steelers and was the 334th man 
chosen by the pros. 

Dr. Victor Kenneth Caldwell of 
Milwaukee, Wis., was named NSU's new 
band director. Dr. Caldwell has over 25 
years experience as a high school and 
college band director. Dr. Caldwell 
comes to NSU from the University of 
Wisconsin at Milwaukee. 

George D. Cook III, was named to 
replace Stormin' Norman Fletcher as the 
voice of the Demons on broadcasts of 
Demon football and basketball games. 
Cook, 30, comes to Natchitoches after 
two years in Minden with KASO Radio. 
Fletcher retired to devote full attention to 
his campaign for sheriff of Natchitoches

Michael W. Gallien 
Sauce Features Editor 

Has the Current Sauce bored you in the past 
few semester? Do you even bother to read it 
anymore? Doug Ireland, 1979-80 Sauce editor- 
in-chief, hopes to change most negative at- 
titudes about the Current Sauce to positive ones 
this fall with many new ideas and innovations. 

Ireland began his tenure as the "Sauce Boss" 
during the past summer. He feels the summer 
proved to e an invaluable experience. He was 
able to experiment with many new features and 
create a great deal of student interest in the 
paper. He hopes the interest will carry over this 

Among the features to look forward to will 
be Hot Sauce, a weekly column in which Dr. 
Bienvenu fields student questions on a variety 
of subjects. Ireland invites students to turn 
questions in at the Sauce office in the Arts& 
Sciences building and they will be relayed to Dr. 

Another feature Extra Sauce, gives the in- 
dividual student an opportunity to state 
opinions and ideas. Students desiring to write a 
letter to the editor should turn a neatly typed or 
handwritten letter in at the Sauce office. 
Letters should sufficiently cover the subject but 
should not be exceedingly lengthy. All letters 
must be signed. 

In addition to these features, the Current 
Sauce will attempt to stay on top of all campus 
happenings by utilizing the largest staff is 
recent Sauce history. Regular columns will 
appear on various subjects throughout the year 
to give the reader a variety of views and 

Doug Ireland 

Ireland stated in a recent interview t hat he is 
"excited about the upcoming year." He 
continued, "I feel cinfident that this staff will 
do an outstandingjob. We have good people at 
all the key positions, and they are interested in 
producing a paper the students can enjoy." 

Ireland and the Sauce staff welcome student 
comments and suggestions throughout the year. 
Students are asked to write, call, or come by 
room 225, Arts and Sciences, to state their 
opinions. Also, student contributions arc 
always welcome, but the Current Sauce retains 
the right to edit all or part of all contributions.

New Art head named 

Dr. Billy J. Bryant has been 
appointed chairman of the 
Department of Art at Northwestern

return to full-time teaching 
responsibilities at the university. 

Bryant earned the bachelor's 
degree in art from Centenary 
College in Shreveport. He was 
awarded the master of fine arts 

degree in painting from George 
Washington University in 
Washington, D.C., and received the 
D. Ed. degree in art education from 
Pennsylvania State University. 

Prior to joining the NSU faculty 
in 1976, Bryant served as professor 
of art at Morehead State University 
in Kentucky for two years. He has 
also held teaching positions at the 
University of Kentucky, Penn-

6 CURRENT SAUCE Tuesday, August 28, 1979

A' ■ 






As most of you have guessed and 
the rest of you will shortly discover, 
what you are looking at is the first 
fall issue of the Sauce. And as 
anyone who can see and was here in 
the spring will notice there is a 
difference, between last year's and 
this year's paper. 

Right! there is a new editor and 
staff. . .but the diffence between 
this Sauce and last spring's is, I 
hope on a much larger scale than 
that. This is not meant as a criticism 
of any past staff, but when we took 
over the paper we didn't have to 
think too hard to understand that 
you weren't happy with the Sauce. 

We did have to think hard, 
though, to figure out what to do 
about it. The fact that the paper was 
in deep financial trouble didn't help 
us think, but still we came up with 
what we hope is a solution to the 

Things have drastically changed 
concerning the paper — most things, 
that is. The changes run deeper 
even than a new staff, a new layout, 
and many new features in- 
corporated into this issue. !t is a 
change in attitude. As editor, 1 
sincerely believe the primary 
purpose of the Current Sauce is to 
serve you, to let you know what has 
happened, what is going on, and 
what will go on here at Nor- 

We will work towards that goal- 
total service to you, the NSU 
community. We are only 14 people 
who will try their best to put in these 
pages what you want to see. We will 
try to make it informative and 
interesting to read. . .and to do that, 
we need your help and co-operation. 

As I said, we are only 14 people, 
and no matter how much we may 
try, we 14 will not be able to plan 
and produce a newspaper with 
r widespread interest without your 
help. Let us know what you think 
of this and subsequent issues of the 
paper. Communicate with us, not 
only through suggesting ideas but 
through participating in our 
features like Hot Sauce, Extra 
Sauce, and Sauce Survey. 

We're not going to pretend that 
we know all the answers about how 
the bookstore should be run, or 
what is happening on campus, or 
even how to put out a good college 
newspaper. The only thing we ar 
going to do is to work as hard as 
possible to give you a paper that you 
are satisfied with. 

With your help, we can do that — 
and only with your help. We cannot 
do it alone, as 14 out of 6,000. If 
you will give us a hand, our goal can 
be reached. 

You may notice that a few 
paragraphs ago I mentioned the 
financial woes of the paper in the 
past and then, in the next sentence, 
said that most things have 
drastically changed concerning the 
paper. Unfortunately, about the 
only thing that has not changed is 
the financial situation. It still stinks. 

Actually, we have improved 
tremendously the financial status of 
the Sauce. The problem is that in 
making cuts to try and save money, 
we have had to do without much of 
the basic equipment needed to 
produce a good nnewspaper. The 
photographers have had to spend 
their own money on supplies that 
the Sauce ran out of and simply 
could not afford, like film and 
photographic paper. We have only 
one dried-up bottle of liquid pa-per 
(weakened with water to make it last 
longer) to correct our typing errors. 
We have six typewriters-two of 
which are broken. We can't fix 
them ourselves, and we can't afford 
to have someone else fix them 
because we have no money. 

"What!" No money! "you say." 
"Doesn't the Current Sauce get 
$2.00 from my registration fees each 
semester " 

Yes, we get that fee. It goes 
entirely on scholarship money to 
pay the staff. We have five full 
scholarships as defined in the SGA 
Constitution to use as payment for 
staff. Spreading that money out 
among the whole staff makes it 
pretty thin to begin with. Then 
consider the lessening value of the 
dollar, and you can almost see 
through it. 

So, logically, you ask, "What 
about all those ads in the paper each 
week Where does that money go " 
A good question, and a timely- 
one. First of all, those of you who 
have been here a while might 
remember that there weren't always 


that many ads in the paper. ..and if 
you want to see that with your own 
eyes, come on up to our office and 
look at some back issues. 

Since Advertising Director David 
Stamey took over, ad revenue has 
increased . As a matter of fact, we 
believe Dave has set some kind of 
Current Sauce record for ad- 
vertising revenue for one issue with 
his ads in this paper. Trouble is, he 
did it all himself. We have no ad 
staff, we only have Dave— and he 
does a tremendous job. Not only 
does he sell all of the ads, but he 
also composes and draws up most of 
them, and must decide where in the 
paper they will go. 

Dave gets paid, but he spends 
much of his salary on gas. He uses 
the phone as much as possible to 
save his own money, but to do a 
good job he has to get out in the car 
and visit businesses, who hopefully 
are gracious enough to advertise 
with us. 

Why doesn't Dave have some 
help? We couldn't offer anything 
more than a ten percent commission 
for ad salesmen, and no one is 
interested in working for that. 

Still, we get back to the question 
of what happens to all our ad 
revenue. To put things very simply, 
the way things are now, our ad- 
vertising has to pay for our printing 
costs. It doesn't, It hasn't, and it 
probably never will. Back in 1975, 
when the paper got a fee increase up 
to the present $2.00 level, printing 
costs were covered because they, 
like gasoline were substantially less 
than they are now. But if anything , 
they have gone up faster that the 
price of gas while our ad money 
stays the same. 

Increase our ad rates, you 
suggest. Stamey has enough hard 
work trying to sell at the current 
rates, which he says are really too 
high for most merchants most of the 
time. They will spend the money at 
the beginning ot the semester, 
during Tech Week and the 
Christmas Lights. But the other 
issues we put out are usually tough 
to round up ads for. 

Believe me, we have tried 
everything. There is no answer, we 
cut our operating expenses, trimmed 
off all the fat to try and meet 
publishing costs, and we can not do 

Renegotiate your printing con- 
tract, you finally venture. The 
Times prints the Sauce because they 
are the only place techically able to. 
They have been very understanding, 
and actually are maing just enough 
money off the contract to pay their 

So, the bottom line is this. We 
have only two alternatives. One, we 
can ask for a fee increase enough to 
cover printing costs. Two, we 
reduce both the size of the paper 
from full-page back to tabloid, and 
cut staff members to pay for the 
still-overwhelming printing cossts. 

Maybe I'm just stubborn, and 
maybe I'm a little stupid. But It 
seems to me that the only way to go 
is up. For a long while now you 
have not been happy with the Sauce. 

Neither have the staffs or the 
editors, simply because most, if not 
all, of what they tried to do was 
frustrated by lack of money. Yes, 
there was poor money management, 
but there will be no more. Karen 
Carr, our Business Manager, is an 
honor roll accounting student with 
past staff experience. She knows 
howfo efficiently run a budget, and 
has trimmed ours down to the bare 

We as a staff have done all we 
can. We have explored every vialbe 
possiblity for easing the crunch, and 
we found only one answer get a fee 
increase. We promised to do the 
best we could to turn out a paper 
that you and I can be proud 
of... providing that you help us in 

We don't especially like jumping 
up the fees any at all either, but we 
are committed to try to give you the 
best paper we can, and to have any 
chance to do that, we must have 
your support. 

It's like a foofball game... we are 
the running back and you are the 
line. We can make yardage, or we 
can lose it. It all depends on what 
kind of blocking support you give 

We can make progress, or we can 
lose it. It all depends on what kind 
of support you give us. 

It is entirely up to you. 

Due to the Labor Day holiday, the Current Sauce will 
not be published next week. However, the Sauce will 
return the following week and will run continuously for 
10 weeks.

Sauce Opinion Editor 

"Lmm...Ahh...let me think." 
This was the reaction of many 
students when asked who they 
would vote for in the governor's 
race this fall. Some knew exactly 
who the candidates were and what 
they stood for, but the majority 
(unfortunately) didn't. 

There are six major contenders 
for the office, two of which have 
run for governor in previous 
elections. Congressman David 
Treen entered the race in 1972, and 
lost. Senator Edgar "Sonny" 
Mouton is the other contender with 
past campaign experience. Also 
running are Lieutenant Governor 
Jimmy Fitzmorris, State 
Represenative E.L. "Bubba" 
Henry, Louis Lambert, Chairman 
of the Public Services Committee, 
and Secretary of State Paul Hardy. 

Although issues are definitely 
going to play a large part in the 
accumulation of votes, per- 
sonalities, as always, have come to 
the fore, with each candidate 
becoming associated with a specific 
cause or slogan: Fitzmorris 
claiming to have the answer on how 
to bring more industry and jobs to 
Louisiana, Louis Lambert fighting 
that old enemy, inflation, Paul 
Hardy with some ideas for better 
education. Dave Treen battling the 
energy crisis, Bubba Henry stressing 
courage and leadership, and Sonny 
Mouton willing to meet any and all 
issues head-on. 

If all of the students on the NSU 
campus feel the way those polled 
did, some candidates have definitely- 
got a hard campaign ahead of them. 

Percentage wise, Dave Treen is 
leading the way in the Sauce Survey, 
with approximately 46 percent of 
the students polled giving their vote 
to the 3rd District Congressman. 
Paul Hardy was next with 23 
percent, Jimmy Fitzmorris received 
15 percent, and Henry and Mouton 
each received eight percent. 
Classifications and home locatons 
didn't seem to make much 
distinction in the way the students 
voted, for there was a wide variety 
of ages, classes, and answers. 

Some of the more typical com- 

Treen seems to be the likely 
winner to sophomore Dawn DeJean 
of Opelousas "because it seems that 
he would let the people run things -

Jim Davis, another Natchitoches 
freshman, give Treen his vote 
"because it seems that he would 
make his own decisions, and stand 
by them." 

One of the few supporters of 
Bubba Henry found by the Sauce 
Survey was Doug Ireland, from 
Henry's native Jonesboro. "Henry 
is the candidate most familiar with 
how the state government works, 
and he is a proven leader. Henry is 
one of, if not the, greatest Speaker 
of the House Louisiana has ever 
had. He has a good, clean record 
that no one could question." 

Braxton Williams, a 1-1 from 
Bossier, said that if he could vote, 
he'd vote for Treen "because he has 
good intentions." 

"Honest, smart, and reliable" 
was the description of Treen from a 

An incoming freshman from 
Bossier, Lisa Denmon, feels that 
who she votes for and who will win 
aren't necessarily the same thing. 
"I'll vote for Hardy, but Treen will 
probably win. He's more well 
known, and he has a good image in 
his district - the people like him." 

Shawnee Remedies, a 3-1 from 
Zwolle, is solidly behind Jimmy 
Fitzmorris - "I feel he's done the 
most for the state. And he's done a 
lot to help start programs for special 
people such as the retarded. He 
could probably remain unpartial 
between the northern and southern 
parts of the state, which is im- 

Natchitoches freshman Ben 
Mayeaux believes that Treen would

about time to have a Republican in 
office. Also, things have gotten too 
controversial, and Treen isn't too 
radical. He would slow thing

freshman, give Treen his vote

(Editor's Note: The Radical Rag 
is a new column in the Sauce. Copy 
for this column is left under the 
door of the Current Sauce every 
Friday morning. It is always there 
when we get to the newsroom and 
none of the staff really knows for 
sure who writes it or where it comes 

Personally, we believe that it is 
written by the soul of a freshman of 
yesteryear who got lost in Caldwell 
Hall and must forever wander its 
corridors, continually searching for 
his advisor, which, since we can 
never find ours, he will probably 
never find. 

While searching, our lost soul 
takes a break now and then to 
comment upon the state of the 
university and drops us a line every 
Friday to express his opinion.) 

Well, the fall semester is upon us. 
You can always tell when fall is in 
the air, and not by the cooling of the 
weather or the coloring of the 
leaves, but by the glazed look on 
everyone's faces. The freshmen's 
minds are clouded with the com- 
plexities of registration and the 
upper classmen's are burnt by the 
price of books. 

Speaking of books, did you notice 
that once again the price of books 
are getting higher every semester? 

The bookstore seems to be a real 
profit-making industry. After the 
semester is over and you sell your 
books back, they will give you half 
price of what you paid for it. At the 

beginning of the next semester, you 
go back and look at the price of the 
same book, used this time, and it 
may be a dollar or two below of 
what it cost brand new. Talk about 
profit. And they won't let any other 
store in the area sell us student 
books. I may be wrong, but isn't 
that called a monopoly? 

Speaking of interesting things, 
during the summer, the Sauce in- 
stituted a new column, Hot Sauce, 
which allowed students to ask Dr. 
Rene Bienvenu, President of NSU, 
questions and receive answers to 
their question. 

One question that was asked of 
the good doctor didn't receive the 
type answer that we had hoped to 
hear. I shall quote from the July 10 
edition of the Sauce: "Dr. Bien- 
venu: Is there any chance that 
general students will be able to use 
the weights and facilities in the new 
field house? Maybe it can be open 
for general use at least a couple of 
hours a day, or a couple of days in 
the week, until the intramural 
department can buy some equip- 
ment for everyone to use." That 
was the question. 

And here is the answer the good 
doctor gave: "I will discuss the 
matter of the use of the weights in 
the new fieldhouse with Coach 
Williams. I do know that at this 
time a Universal Gym is available 
for general student use in the West 
Concourse of the Coliseum. After 
we have had a chance to discuss the 
matter, I will get in touch with either 

Doug (Ireland) or Miss Parish." 
Rather evasive wouldn't you say. 

Well, Doug nor any member of 
the Current Sauce ever heard from 
Dr. Bienvenu again on the matter, 
so I had to take matters into my own 

Recently, Dr. Bienvenu was again 
asked the question and you'll never 
guess in a million years what he 
said. Give up? He said NO! 

According to Dr. Bienvenu, the 
new field house "cannot" be open 
to the general students for use. The 
doctor states that the facility is 
designed for the athletes' progress 
and not for the whole campus. 

Well, how is that for student 
equality. So unless you are a jock, 
you seem to be deemed a second- 
class student and are not allowed 
into certain areas of the college. 

Unless you are a jock, you are not 
allowed to use the new, quality 
facilities, but are regulated to using 
the older or spare equipment, if you 
can find some on campus. 

The doctor did explain that there 

is a weight machine in the Colisei 
and also that the Intramiu 
committee will "soon" be pi 
chasing other equipment for 
"other" students. 

Well, I'm all for athletic progri 
and 1 will admit that our athlete? 
need a considerable amount; 
progress, but why at the expense 
we more academically mirid 

I don't mind using that little '< 
weight machine in the Coliseum,^ 
it is hard to get excited aboitt 
when you see scratched intoj 
"Jackie Smith Was Here." 

In an university that is wijl< 
known for its rules and regulatif' 
can't there be some type of rule |' 
will let us non-jocks use the $< 
house once in a while. We proiti 
we won't destroy the equipment^

Dear fellow students, 

Just a quick note to say hello and 
hope that registration went well. 
Many activites have been planned 
for you this semester. I urge each of 
you to get involved in some sort of 
extra-curricular activity, such as 
iairamurals, band, clubs and 
organizatons, and last but not least 
student government. 

Keep up with the calendar of 
events that was given to you at 
registration by the Student Union 

Governine Board. It will be very 
useful to you. 

The SGA is now accepting filings 
for freshman, sophmore, junior, 
senior, and graduate class senators. 
I sincerely hope that you will have 
the ambition to apply yourself as a 
student in activities. 

Keep on your toes, keep your 
head up, and make NSU the best 
head start you've ever had. 

Sincerely yours,

romantic of the four young 
men is Dave (Dennis 
Christopher) because his 
ambition is to become an 
Italian bike racing 
champion, he fashions 
himself to be Italian, 
selecting a new name for 
himself from an album of 
Italian music, tossing 
around Italian pharses to 
the bewilderment of his 
parents( Paul Dooley and 
Barbara Barrie). 

But the leader of the 
quartet is Mike (Dennis 
Quaid), the high school 
football star who is having 
trouble adjusting to life off 
the playing field, and he 
takes out his frustrations on 
the college students with 
whom the four teenagers 
are in constant conflict, 
especially after Dave begins

The Board consists of 22

part in the execution of 
these programs. The 
committees are: Concert, 
Public Relations and 
Advertising, Lagniappe, 
Hospitality, Cinema Focus, 
Decorations, Fine Arts, 
and Social Activities. 

It takes people to make 
this committee structure 

work. Getting on a com- 
mittee plugs your voice 
directly into decision-

NSU Band Director Very Pleased 

Northwestern's new director of 
bands Dr. Ken Caldwell, w ho joined 
the university after 25 years as a 
highly-successful high school and 
college band director in Texas, 
California and Wisconsin, says he is 
"pleased with the attitude of 
students, faculty nd the community 
in their desire to develop an out- 
standing marching band." 

Caldwell added, "There is going 
to be a lot of action in our shoes, 
and the music will be different. We 
are going to play all kinds of music, 
and all our music will be special 
arrangements of traditional and 
modern times, 

"On the field," he says, "we are 
going to trv to present precision 

marching its finest, but the accent 
of ous shows will be on our use of 
the music. The dynamics of the 
music is very important, and we will 
present the music in a way that 
should please the crowds." 

Caldwell, a 46-year-old native of 
Nacogdoches, Tex., formely served 
seven years as the director of the 
nationally-acclaimed El Camino 
College Band in Torrance, Calif., 
and for 13 years directed award- 
winning high school bands at 
Weslaco, Nacogdoches, Navasota 
and Timpson in Texas. 

Among his staff members are 
drum major Eddy Clement, senior 
instrumental major from Lafayette; 
feature twirlers Sharon Sampite, 
freshman business major from 

Natchitoches, and Debbie Carney, 
junior medical technology major 
from Natchitoches; flag captain 
Shellie Wiggins, junior upper 
elementary education major from 
Many, rifle captain Sue Ebert, 
senior equine science majoe from 
Williamsport, Head Twirler 
Melinda Palmore, Naples, Texas. 

Northwestern's Demon Marching 
Band is scheduled to perform at all 
NSU home-football games this year 
in Turpin Stadium, in addition to 
field performances at the NSU- 
Louisiana Tech University football 
classic at the Louisiana State Fair in 
Shreveport. The univeristy's band 
will also appear at pep rallies, 
parades, and various other 
university events. 

Two groups this fall 

NSU Entertainers getting 
ready for busy year 

The Northwestern State 
University Entertainers held 
a week-long rehearsal camp 
Sunday August 12 on the 
NSU campus. 

Dr. William A. Hunt, 
director of the popular 
musical group, said 20 
instrumentalists, vocalists 
and sound technicians were 
invited to participate in the 
camp in which 13 of the 
students were be selected as 
members of the NSU 
Entertainers' touring show. 

The NSU Entertainers 
present more than 60 
popular music concerts 
each year, and their 
audiences range from high 
school groups to large 
conventions throughout the 
Ark-La-Tex area. 

Currently under con- 
sideration for a United 
Service Organzation tour of 
Europe, the NSU En- 
tertainers have been 

featured in three regional 
television specials. The 
group has become a regular 
entertainment attraction at 
the Louisiana State Fair 
and at the Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival. 

"There is a lot of new 
music available this year," 
said Hunt, who has directed 
the NSU Entertainers since 
the group 

Hunt says, "The disco 
sound is the o popular thing 
right now, but there are 
many tunes released two or 
three years ago that are still 
quite popular. The country- 
western market has given us 
some very good music this 
year, so we should be able 
to work up a varied 
listening program." 

In addition to the tour 
group, another group of 
performers will also be 
selected during the camp to 
present musical programs 

for smaller audiences, such 
as civic clubs and banquets, 
Hunt said. 

"These students are in 
such demand that we need 
two groups," said Hunt. 

"Each group will per- 
form a certain type of 
music, and I think 
audiences will appreciate 
the approach we have 
chosen in forming the 
second group," he added. 

Among the students 
invited to participate in the 
rehearsal camp are nine 
musicians who have per- 
formed previously with the 
NSU Entertainers. 

Returning performers are 
Leigh Wood of Coushatta, 
keyboard and vocals; 
Randy Walker of 
Texarkana, Tex., bass 
guitar; Richard Rudd of 
Dodson, bass guitar and 
vocals; Alan Evans of 
Natchitoches, drums; Paul 

Shelton of Longview, Tex., 
lead vocals and lead guitar; 
Mairus McFarland, of 
Many, vocals and alto 
saxaphone; Jamie Sanders 
of Shreveport, vocals and 
auxiliary percussion Zina 
Curlee of Alexandria and 
Vicki Corley of Bossier 
City, vocals. 

Coming to their first 
NSU Entertainers camp 
were Julie Hughes of 
Longview, Tex., vocals; 
Karen Murphy of Nat- 
chitoches, vocals; Linda 
Watson of New Iberia, 
vocals; Katie Cason of 
Shreveport, vocals; Jen- 
nifer Grappe of Shreveport , 
vocals; Debbie Levo of 
Many, vocals; JuTina

- Meet the Demons scrimmage set 

b>. Don Hudson 
Sauce sports editor 

Northwestern State University's annual 
"Meet the Demons" scrimmage is set for 5 
p.m. tomorrow at Harry "Rags" Turpin 

The evening meal for all students will be 
served at the stadium beginning at 4:30 p.m. 

The Demons held their first fullscale 
scrimmage Saturday at the Turpin Stadium and 
things were pretty vicious on the field, ac- 
cording to NSU's athletic director and head 
coach A.L. Williams. 

The squad went through its first full-contact 
workouts last Wednesday, and even one rain- 
dampened workour was not enough to diminish 
the enthusiasm of Williams. 

"The only thing the rain did to us was make 
the ball slick." Williams N.iid after his charges 
went through a 90-miiuite workout Wednesday 
morning in a intermittent shower. "On the 
artifica! surface, we were still able to go at full 
speed, and our kids enjoyed it since it ga\e us a 
break from the heat." 

That heat, though, was back in evidence 
during the afternoon when the Demons went 
through a full-scale workout which featured the 
first heavy hitting of the 1979 fall season. 

The Demons, who open their 1979 season on 
Sept. 15 at home aganist Stephen F. Austin, 
scrimmaged with the veterans for 15 minutes at 
the end of the afternoon workout, and 
following that the new freshmen went at it in a 
brief 10-minuie scrimmage workout. 

"Our older kids look ready to go now," 

Williams said after the scrimmage, "and some 
of our younger kids looked really good in their 
first contact work." 

No injuries were reported during the 
scrimmage work, but some of the players did 
not take part in the workout. Wide reeener 
James Bennett of Shreveport set out of action 
as a precautionary measure as he continues to 
recover from a spring knee operation, and 
defensi\e tackle John Hannon of Monroe is 
also reco\ering from knee surgery and is still 
not in contract drills. In addition, tackles Bob 
McGraw oflexandria and Arthur Pickens of 
Opelousas both sat out the scrimmage with 
minor ailments but both players have returned 
recently to daily w orkouts. 

The Demons will now work out once daih 
until their season opener.

Blackwell, a 6'5" 210

"He seems to have enough

Blackwell set a

vailable for duty. 

"People are still trying to tell 
enny he's too small to be a college 
:rback," said Williams, "but 
;sn't listen to them any more. I 
lave total confidence in both he and 
Rex when it comes to them leading 
our offense." 
Philibert, a 5-foot-9 from 
keveport-Captain Shreve, passed 
for 982 yards last season after 
throwing for 963 yards and eight 
louchdowns as a sophomore, while 
Henderson, a native of Lafayette 
ivho transferred from LSU two 
seasons ago, passed for 424 yards 
ast year. 

Henderson, a 6-foot-l, 185- 
pounder, connected on 36 of 76 
asses in a part-time role last year 
for a 47.4 percent ratio, while 
Hebert will be seeing his first varsity 
tction this fall. 

The other prospect is big 6-foot-4 
redshirt freshman Bobby Hebert of 
aitoff-South Lafourche, who sat 
»ut the 1978 season but should see 
plenty of action this year. 

The running backs 
You couldn't blame head coach 
A. L. Williams or Northwestern 
State University's football fans if 
they were anxious to see what will 
come of the Demon running game 
(luring the 1979 season. 

Both Williams and the Demon 
fans, of course, are anxious to see 
what a guy named Joe Delaney has 
cooked up for the coming year. 

Delaney, one of the most exciting 
runners in the entire South, rushed 
for 945 yards as a sophomore last 
year to go with ten touchdowns, and 
he heads up a group of experienced 
and talented rushers that help make 

peiiiois and better quality 
players than the high school 
ranks." said the 6'2"225 
pound nose guard. 

"David is an aggressive 
player." said Williams. \\'c 
feel that with a lot of hard 
work and good coaching 
that he can become a fine 
plavet . 

Shilling, a 5" 1 1" 220 
pound offensive guard, also 
prepped at Bryan. He was 
also an All-District 
selection his junior and 
senior campaigns. 

"College football is a lot 
more intense and the 
practices are a lot more 
organized than in high 
school," said Shillings. 

the offensive backtield the strong 
point of the 1979 NSU squad. 

"Joe will be one of the big keys to 
our success during the season," 
Williams said of the 5-foot-l 1, 180- 
pounder from Haughton. "But we 
will also have several other capable 
people who are also available to 
carry the football." 

The others are six-foot senior 
fullback Brett Knecht of Nat- 
chitoches, who rushed for 497 yards 
last year; 5-foot-10 senior tailback 
Mark Schroeder of Harahan, who 
carried for 452 yards; and im- 
proving sophomore fullback 
Carlton Finister, a 6-foot-l product 
of Sicily Island who had 66 yards 
last season. 

The receivers 

When a team loses two four-year 
starters at the wide receiver slots and 
two players who alternated at tight 
end over that same four-year 
period, and when the departeds also 
include two of the top three and 
three of the top ten receivers in 
school history, it usually spells 

That in essence is the position 
Northwestern head coach A. L. 
Williams finds himself in during the 
1979 season. Gone are Mike 
Almond, NSU's all-time leading 
pass grabber now laboring for the 
Buffalo Bills ; Wyamond Waters, 
who was killed in a tragic auto 
accident at the end of his senior 
season last year; and tight ends Pat 
Collins and Jack Serpas. 

That group combined for a total 
of 250 receptions over the past four 

"You don't replace a group of 
people like that," Williams said, 
"but 1 feel we have some talented 
individuals in our receiver slots and 
I'm sure they will do an adequate 

There is one proven receiver 
among the group in junior James 
Bennett, a 6-foot-l, 185-pounder 
from Shreveport- Woodlawn who 
has played in a part-time role the 
past two seasons. He caught 15 
passes for 194 yards last year after 
catching 16 for 312 yards and five 
touchdowns as a freshman. 






Northwestern State University's first offensive 
unit at the opening of fall drills included (front 
row, I. to r.) tackle Charles Rose of Garland, 
Tex., guard Fred Galloway of DeRidder, 
center Warren Griffith of Baker, Fla., center 
Chris Craighead of Farmerville, guard Pat 
Spruce of Camden, Ark., tackle Johnny 
Skinner of DeRidder, tight end Doug Manning 
of Sterlington, (back row) wide receiver James 
Bennett of Shreveport, fullback Brett Knecht 
of Natchitoches, quarterback Kenny Philibert 
of Shreveport, tailback Joe Delaney of 
Haughton and wide receiver Randy Liles of 
Oil City. (NSU photo) 

The other likely starter at the 
wide-out slot is Randy Liles, a six- 
foot, 171-pound junior from Oil 
City-North Caddo. Liles only saw 
limited action last year, catching 
one pass, but he hauled in two TD 
passes during the Demons' spring 
game and was impressive 
throughout spring drills. He also 
punted 12 times for a 35.6 average 
last season. 

The tight end situation is much 
different, with three players all 
expected to see much playing time. 
The leader after spring practice was 
junior Barry Rubin (6-1, 220), a 
produce of Monroe-Neville who 
transferred to NSU from LSU two 
seasons ago. 

The offensive line 

Most offensive line coaches will 
tell you that their area is the most 
difficult for a new player to break 
into and be successful, and Nor- 
thwestern State University offensive 
line mentor Joe Raymond Peace is 
no exception. 

And Peace will have a lot of these 
difficulties during the 1979 season, 
apparently, since only one starter 
returns in the Demon offensive 
front from the 1978 campaign. 

"The most important thing for an 
offensive lineman to have is ex- 
perience," Peace said, "and we do 
have people that have some game 
experience, and what they lack in 
overall experience this group should 
make up in hard work. This is a 
close-knit group with a strong desire 
to be successful." 

The leader of that group is 5-f oot- 
id, 240-pound fireplug guard Fred 
Galloway, a two-year starter at right 
guard. Galloway, a native of 
DeRidder, came to NSU as a walk- 
on in 1977 after a standout per- 
formance in the LHSAA All-Star 
game and earned a scholarship and 
a starting berth during his freshman 

Other than Galloway, though, 
there are no other returning starters. 

However, there are five other 
lettermen scattered around the 
offensive front, and all will be 
heavily counted upon this season. 

Two returning sophomore let- 
termen, 6-foot-l, 216-pound Pat 
Spruce of Camden, Ark., and 6- 
foot-1, 229-pound Randy Lee of 
Mt. Pleasant, Tex., will be at the 
left side guard position opposite 
Galloway. Sophomore Tony Fakess 
(6-0, 215) of Shreveport -Woodlawn 
and freshman signee Steve Shillings 
(6-11, 220) of Bryan, Tex., will be 
providing most of the backup 
support at the guard slots. 

Only one letterman is back at 
tackle, that being big 6-foot-5, 244- 
pound junior Johnny Skinner, a 
high school teammate of Galloway 
at DeRidder. The other starter is 
likely to be sophomore Mark 
Mathews (6-5, 225) of 
Nacogdoches, Tex., who Peace said 
was one of the most agile big players 
he had ever coached. 

Providing backup help at the 
tackle spots will be two other 
returning squadmen, sophomore 
Bud Snodgrass (6-1, 245) and 
freshman Charles Rose (6-0, 225), 
both from Garland, Tex. 

The center spot is also well 
manned with experience, with two 
lettermen back who alternated in a 
starting role during spring practice. 
Junior Warren Griffith (6-1, 220) of 
Baker, Fla. and sophomore Chris 
Craighead (5-11, 210) of Farmerville 
both worked with the No. 1 unit 
during the spring .

Norm Fletcher: 

For Norm Fletcher, the ballgame has 
only begun. 

: Fletcher, who for 25 years entertained 
thousands of people with his masterful 
radio play-by-play of Northwestern 
sporting events, has pushed aside the 
microphone and currently is actively 
campaigning for Sheriff of Natchitoches 

Certainly, Norm is no novice to law 
enforcement. Since 1962, he has been the 
Parish Civil Defense Director and has 
brought the local unit's ranking up to the 
top 10 percent in the nation with a record 
of highly commendable service. 

Certainly, too, he is not unknown to 
the people of Natchitoches and Nor- 
thwestern. He has resided here since birth 
and for the past 10 years has handled 
news and sports for KNOC-KDBH radio, 
and with his work, he has touched the 
lives of the community and also of NSU. 

Norm's educational background is 
highly impressive. He began at the old 
Natchitoches Training School, then 
Natchitoches High School, NSU, 
University of Southwestern La., the Air 
Force Intelligence School at NM State 
College, the LSU Police In-Service 
Training Schools, plus numerous law 
enforcement and disaster workshops. 

Though his face might not be familiar 
to many area residents, his voice 
definitely is a trait that is familiar to all 
NSU sports fans. Norm's colorful and 
unique broadcasting excellence was used 
to pull NSU football and basketball fans 
through some one-thousand games over 
the last 25 years. As one long-time listener 
put it, "There was never a dull moment 
with Norm Fletcher mikeside." 

Ironically enough, Fletcher's radio 
career began by accident. After a football 
knee injury ended his athletic career, 
Norm began travelling to games with a 
local sportscaster and served as spotter, 
until suddenly, as fate would certainly 
have it, he was pushed into duty as the 
play-by-play man when the regular an- 
nouncer left town. And so the story 

After a brief stint with the local station, 
Norm went into the Air force, where he 
was Editor-in-Chief of the Far East 
Network with Headquarters in Tokyo 
during the Korean War. 

He then returned home and for 15 years 
was co-owner of KNOC radio, taking a 
dying, run-down radio station and 
making it into a successful and important 

A new beginning 

one and he has been doing NSU football 
and basketball since. 

His accomplishments are outstanding, 
beginning when he was noted the first 
"Mr. Natchitoches High School." Norm 
was named Louisiana's Number 1 
newscaster in 1955; was the only President 
of the Natchitoches Parish Chamber of 
Commerce to serve three years; former 
State President of the La. Civil Defense 
Association; past vice-president of the 
State Chamber of Commerce, and an 
active member in the NSU Century Club. 
In addition, he was voted into the Blue 
Key National Honor Fraternity here at 
NSU, was named "Young Man of the 
Year" by the Jaycees in 1958; "Man of 
the Year" in 1960 by the Chamber of 
Commerce; and 1978 "Man of the Year" 
by the Post 10, American Legion. 

Fletcher's loyalty and dedication have 
been instrumental in gaining 
recognitionfor the city and for NSU, and 
in return, for himself. He is a proud man, 
in the most respectful sense of the word, 
and well he should be, for his talents and 
achievements are no feature that one sees 
in just anyone. 

Norm's meaning to NSU is infinite. He 
was more than just a radio sports voice. 
He was the most avid Demon fan, always, 
and he was the best play-by-play man 
there could have been. He was even a 
cheerleader at times, whether on-the-air 
or from the sidelines. But most of all, he 
was himself. 

Norm is the kind of person who loves 
his work and takes tremendous pride in it 
as well. His decision to abandon the radio 
field for the Sheriff's race was not an easy 

"This is probably the hardest single 
decision I've ever had to make, because 
radio is such a meaningful part of me," 
Fletcher revealed, "but I have had the 
calling to enter the race for several years. 
I just felt now was the right time." 

Fletcher also said that even though he 
might be far from the microphone, he 
would never be far away from NSU. 

"No matter what the future brings, my 
heart will always be with Northwestern," 
he stated, "because it has been so dear to 
me for so many years that I could never 
completely relinquish my relationship 
with it. 

Tnis is by no means any sort of a political 
advertisement, but simply a personal 
tribute to a man who has been such an 
important part of Northwestern for so

NSU Intramurals 

Fletcher Retires 
Norm Fletcher, for over a quarter of a centurv 
the "Voice of the Demons" over the NSU 
Sports Radio Network, has stepped down 
from that position this year to seek political 

As the sun set on NSU's beautiful new 
track complex last April 25, more than 
230 students had participated in the 
Second Annual Intramural Track Meet. 
The four hour event proved to be an 
exciting turning point for the intramural 

This fall's addition of a S2.00 student 
fee represents students' desire to improve 
the program even more. Participation in 
last fall's activities showed an increase 
over the previous year. Of the 1,315 
students participating in last fall's ac- 
tivities 51 percent of the males and 27 
percent of the females were represented. 
The combined total of students involved 
in the activities was 37 percent of NSU's 
full time enrollment. 

The major goal for the 1979-80 in- 
tramural program is increased student fun 
through partipation. Coordinator of 
intramurals Ginger Parish plans to tackle 
this ambition from at least five directions: 

(1) Higher quality equipment will be 
purchased, both for equipment check-out 
as well as for usse in intramural activities, 

(2) A calendar-handbook has been 
prepared for each student in conjunction 
with the SUGB, (3) New activities will be 
added to the 32 of last fall. These will 


include co-ed two-on-two basketball, a 
monopoly tournament, golf, basketball 
"Hot Shot", and a slam dunk contest, an: 
intramural •"all-niter" including activities 
ranging from a tobacco spitting contest to 
disco and square dancing, (4) Improved 
award system and (5) Efficient officials. 

The upcoming NSU intramural 
program promises to be a satisfying^ 
experience and is limited only by students 
desire to participate, according to Robert 
\V. Wilson, Director of Student Ac-s 

Parrish stressed the need for talented 
flag football officials who are essential to; 
the success of competitive intramural 

Pay for officials will begin at $3.00 per; 
game and will be based upon experience; 
and effeiciency. A flag football official's 
clinic is set for Sept. 10 at 5 p.m. and; 
Sept. 11 at 3 p.m. in room 112 of the; 
intramural building, ttendance at both; 
sessions of the clinic is required for in 
terested students. For more information; 
you should call the intramural office (357-5 

This fall's activities kick-off with tug-; 
of-war and co-ed Softball. The 
registration deadline is this Friday. 

Philly likes Perot's potential 

Nothing is ever a sure 
thing when it comes to 
makind squad cuts in the 
National Football League, 
but former Northwestern 
State University standout 
Petey Perot is probably one 

of the closest to a sure thing 
in the entire league. 

Perot, a standout of- 
fensive guard at NSU for 
four years before being 
drafted in the second round 
by the Philadelphia Eagles 

Bears cut Willie 

Willie Washington, former standout defensive tackle 
at Northwestern State University, was cut by the 
Chicago Bears of the National Football League 

Washington, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound defensive tackle, 
had originally signed with the Atlanta Falcons as a free 
agent after completing a four-year career 

A four-year letterman at NSU, Washingn was a two- 
time All-Louisiana selection and was the leading vote- 
getter at defensive tackle on the All-Louisiana team 
both years. He was also NSU's Most Valuable 
Defensive Player his senior year. He was cut by the Fal. 
cons two weeks ago but was picked up on waivers by 
the Bears and had seen action in two pre-season games. 

earlier this year, survived 
the cut to 50 squad 
members required by the 
NFL earlier this week and is 
one of four guards 
remaining in the Eagle 

"He's 99 and nine-tenths 
assured of making the 
team," said Eagle public 
relations director Jim 
Gallagher this week. "Our 
staff feels that he has the 
potential to be an out- 
standing player in this 

Perot is in the guard slots 
with three veterans, Wade 
Key, Woody Peoples and 
Tom Luken. Key, who will 
turn 33 in October, and 
Peoples, who recently 
turned 36, were the starters 
at the guard slots last 
season for Philadelphia. 

"Petey hasn't started any 
yet," Gallagher said, "but 
he's been playing as much 
as any of the others in our 
exhibition games so far. 
He's been backing up both 
of our starters. 

Perot was hampered with 
a muscle pull earlier in 
training camp but has fully; 
recovered and played most: 
of last Friday's exhibition 
contest against the 
Baltimore Colts. 

Change Announced 

Northwestern State University's Lady Demon 
basketball squad has made one change on it 1979-80 
schedule, according to coordinator of women's athletics | 
and head coach Pat Nolen. 

The changed contest is against Southeastern La. in 
Hammond, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, 
Dec. 9, at 3 p.m. in SLU's Cefalu Coliseum. A cnflict 
with Southeastern's final exams forced the move, and 
that game is now scheduled for Monday, Dec. 31, at 
7:30 p.m. in Hammond. 

"They just notified us this week about the change," 
Nolen said. "They didn't want to play on the day 
before finals, and the Dec. 31 date was the only-other 
one available that was close to the original date."

Hot Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
President Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
have a question, comment, com- 
plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(Room 225A in Kyse. Hall) and 
we'll pass it along to Dr. Bienvenu. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu, Why does the 
bookstore not have certain books in 
stock which are required for classes? 
Many classes are running at a 
disadvantageto both the student and 
the teacher since no one can pur- 
chase a text because the bookstore 
has run out. Specifically, I know 
there are shortages of books for 
some psycology, English, science, 
and a few other courses, not to 
mention a lack of lab kits and 
supplies. Why can't there be a little 
better planning so that we can get 
the books we need when we need 

A. .1 spoke to Darlene Rachal 
concerning the textbook problem, 
and found that the majority of the 
problems resulted from conservative 
requests made by the various 
departments. This is an un- 
fortunate, but welcome, problem, 
and seems to be prevalent among 
the freshman classes due to our 
increased freshman class 
enrollment. Darlene has also been 
faced with delivery problems, but is 
doing everything possible to rectify 
the inconvenience resulting from 
these problems. 











Q. Dr. Bienvenu, A lot has been 
said, but as far as we can tell, 
nothing has been done concerning a 
weight machine or some weights for 
general student use. The only 
weights for our use are locked up in 
the Coliseum, and often there is 
nobody around to unlock them. 
Why doesn't the University post 
some hours that the room will be 
open, or get some weights for 
general students and place them 
w here we can use them on some sort 
of regular basis? 

A. I understand that Coach 
Williams has met with members of 
the Current Sauce staff and some 
arrangements have been planned for 
providing weight lifting facilities to 
the general student body. I would 
like to remind you also that plans 
are being formulated to improve the 
recreational facilities in the Mens 
Old Gym, but this cannot be ac- 
complished in a matter of a few 
weeks. Patience is a virtue that we 
should all develop. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu, I am a student 
taking Educational Psychology 201, 
and my class has been informed that 
one requirement ot the course is that 
each student spend eight hours in 
classroom participation at St. 
Matthews High School. This is in 
addition to quite a few hours of 
observations in schools in Nat- 
chitoches (though class time will be 
used for some of those in Nat- 
chitoches schools). Students cannot 
get credit for the class without 
completing this requirement. 

The students in my class were told 
in no uncertain terms that we would 
each have to provide for our own 
transportation, because "you can 
always get a ride if you want to." 

I don't have a car, and quite 
frankly, I don't look forward to 
hitchiking to St. Matthews for the 
Squired minimum of four sessions. 
Neither do I look forward to 
spending my lunch break on the 
r oad. Dr. Bienvenu, my question is 
twofold. First, how can you justify 
'he requirement of so many extra 
hours for three hours of credit? 
Second, do you think it is fair to 
give students a grade based 
Somewhat on their accessibility to a

Elections for the 1979 Nor- 
thwestern Homecoming Court and 
for nine Student Government 
Association Class Senator positions 
will be held tomorrow in the lobby 
of the Student Union, SGA 
Commissioner of Elections Rick 
DuBois said. 

Also on the ballot in this, the first 
campus-wide election of the Fall '79 
semester, is a $1 fee increase 
proposal for the Current Sauce. 

DuBois said that 40 students have 
filed and are qualified to appear on 
the ballot for the SGA posts. 
Sixteen candidates entered the race 
for the two freshman representative 
spots, while six students filed for the 
two sophomore positions. Eight 
persons are contesting the two 
junior posts, and nine final-year 
students have declared their can- 
didacies for the two senior slots. 

Fifteen co-eds have been 

nominated by various campus 
groups and organizations to serve 
on the 1979 Homecoming Court. 

Nominees are diane Adams, 
Marilyn Boss, Julie Bowden, Karen 
Carr, Pitty Cathey, Wendy Cox, 
Kelly Crowell, Zina Curlee, Barbie 
Jenkins, Vicki Kitchens, Laurie 
Lindsey, Lou Manuel, Julie Parker, 
Sadie Scott, and Terri Scott. 

Voters will be asked to choose 
nine of the 15 beauties to serve on 
the Cout, and the co-ed with the 
largest amount of votes will be 
named NSU's Homecoming Queen. 

Among those filing for the 
freshman SGA posts are Regina 
Denise Young, Russell Blaine 
Williams, Leigh Wommack, Joe 
Stamey, Melody Sprowl, Susan 
Sands, Keith Richard, and Scott 

Other candidates for freshman 
Class Senator are Denice Nix, Helen 
Morgan, Dalia Hernandez, Patrick 
Johnson, Susanne Crawford, Mike 
Calamari, Steven Bradley, and Judi 


The six sophomore Class Senator 
hopefuls are Sherrie Mattson, 
Jewell Crow, Kevin Bartholomew, 
Dianna Kemp, Melissa D. Miller, 
and Wendy Wyble. 

Juniors Richard Calvert, Dennis 
McClung, Sandra Carnahan, Mark 
Manuel, Tina Morell, Bobby 
Boullion, Angela Dogens, and Stan 
Scroggins are running for the two 
SGA posts from their class. 

The nine seniors in contention for 
the positions are Kenny Cox, Gisele 
Proby, Anthony Butler, Leslie 
Thompson, Pam Young, Lisa 
Wright, Lynn Kees, and Roger 

The lone graduate student to file 
for SGA Graduate Class Senator 
was John Pickett. 

The Current Sauce fee increase 
proposal, which would allow the 
paper to cover rising printing costs, 
springs from a bill by SGA president 

Terry McCarty introduced during 
the first fall SFA meeting. 

The bill reads as follows: 

WHEREAS, the Current Sauce is 
operating on a deficit budget, 

WHEREAS, publishing and 
printing costs have increased 
dramatically since 1975, and 

WHEREAS, the Current Sauce 
is NSU's student newspaper and 
provides valuable information to 
not only NSU students but also the 
community, area, and state, and 
future students as well. 

RESOLVED that the NSU full-time 
students be assessed an additional 
fee of $1.00 for Current Sauce 
beginning the Spring of 1980. 

Presently, the student newspaper 
receives $2 per full-time student 
each semester. The paper's fees have 
not been increased since 1975. Due 
primarily to dramatic increases in 
publishing and printin costs, the 
Sauce has been operating on or near 

a deficit budget for most of the past 
three years. 

The bill carries the endorsement 
of both the SGA and the 
Warrington Campus Council House 
of Representatives. WCC President 
Pitty Cathey said the the bill has 
"the official full support and en- 
dorsement of the WCC House." 
The group voted on the issue during 
its first fall meeting last Tuesday. 

Dubois stated that participation 
in this election, especially in the 
nomination process, has been needs 
to improve. He said that only 31 of 
98 campus organizations submitted 
nominations for Homecoming 
Court, and just 18 of 56 dorm floors 
turned in their list of nominees. 

He emphasized the importance of 
the election tomorrow and strongly 
urged all students to vote. Polls will 
be open until 7 p.m. in front of the 
Student Union Ballroom, and all 
students must present ID cards in 
order to vote.

Fieldhouse weights 

Several varsity athletes are shown working out 
on some of the weight machines at NSU's new 
athletic fieldhouse. Student usage of the 
weights has become a major issue on campus, 

and Sauce Focus Editor Mike Gallien discusses 
the issue with NSU Athletic Director A.L. 
Williams on page 3 in a personal interview, 
(staff photo by Dennis Tyler). 

Washington Post executive editor 
Benjamin C. Bradlee will discuss 
power and the press in an address at 
Northwestern State University Sept. 
19 to open the university's 
Distinguished Lecture Series for the 
fall semester. 

Bradlee, a nationally-acclaimed 
newsman and author of two books 
on the late John F. Kennedy, will 
address NSU faculty, staff and 
students at 10 a.m. in the A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Center" 
Auditorium. The program is also 
open to the public without charge. 

Named executive editor of the 
Post in 1968, Bradlee has also 
served as a political and European 
news correspondent for Newsweek 

Bradlee, who was managing 
editor of the Post for nearly three 
years before being named executive 
editor of the newspaper, was 
working for Newsweek Magazine 
when he began intensive coverage of 
presidential races, touring with 
Kennedy and Richard Nixon in the 
1960 campaigns. 

The Post's executive editor had 
become a close friend of Sen. John 

Edwards will run again in 1983 

By David La Vere 
Sauce News Editor 

Candidates running for a variety 
of public offices flooded into 
Natchitoches Saturday to par- 
ticipate in a "political fair" held at 
the Louisiana Outdoor Drama 
Association's ampitheatre of Grand 
Ecore Road. $ 

Outgoing governor, Edwin 
Edwards was on hand at the fair, 
and participated as Master of 

Edwards, who has already served 
two consecutive terms and is 
considered by many to be one of the 
best and ablest governors to have 
ever held the office in Louisiana, 
will be leaving the office and will 
return to private practice. 

"I'm going to practice law in 
Baton Rouge and prepare to run 
again in '83," Edwards told the 

Recently, much speculation has 
been given as to whether Edwards 
would return to run governor in 
1983, but at the fair, Edwards was 
definite that he would return in '83. 

A short time ago, the govenor 
stated that he was casting an eye 
toward the national political scene 
and was watching the presidental 
race closely. 

When asked if he were really 
thinking about entering into 
national politics, Edwards told the 
Sauce. It is always a possibility but 
I'm going to have to ride with the 
tide. . .and take advantage of any 

opportunity that presents itself." 

Of the six major candidates who 
are running for the office of 
governor, only two were personally 
on hand at the fair, Jimmy Fitz- 
morris and Bubba Henry. Paul 
Hardy and Louis Lambert were 
represented by proxy. 

Concerning the quality of 
education in Louisiana, Fitzmorris 
stated that he would like to allow 
teachers a freer hand in discipling 
students and assuring teachers and 
adequate salary for their work, so 
"they will not have to come before 
the legislature year after year with 
their hats in their hands asking for a 
larger buget." "Too much blame 
has been put on the teachers," 
Fitzmorris told the Sauce, "it is in 
the home where improving the 
quality of education begins." 

Concerning the energy crisis, 
Fitzmorris believes that industry 
should be encouraged to spend more 
money on alternate energy sources, 
such as gasahol and coal. 

When asked where he stood 
concerning the legalization or 
decriminalization of marijuana, 
Fitzmorris replied, "I am definitely 
not for the legalization of 
marijuana, but I am practical 
enough to realize that there should 
be lesser penalties for first or second 

Bubba Henry who is the 
only north Louisiana candidate for 
governor, commented on the ideas 

of tax reduction. "We cannot af- 
ford to reduce taxes and still provide 
the roads and the quality of 
education that you want. I am for 
and do believe in stabilization of 

Concerning the energy crisis, 
Henry criticized other states who are 
not taking ami initiative in solving 
their own energy problems, but are 
sucking up Louisiana's oil and gas. 
Henry stated that he does support 
alternative energy souces. "Not 
only do we have the oil and gas, but 
we also have a lot of lignite," 
commented Henry. 

Concerning the marijuana issue, 
Henry told the Sauce, "I don't 
propose legalization of marijuana, 
but I do feel first offenders should 
not have their lives ruined by going 
to jail, but should have to pay a fine 
or attend some type of education 
class in mind altering drugs." 

It was a full day of politicking 
with candidates for Secretary of 
State, Treasurer, Commissioners of 
Agriculture, Elections, and In- 
surance, and many others on hand. 
In fact, there were probably more 
candidates than spectators at the 

While he was not at the fair, 
Republican candidate for governor, 
Dave Treen, will be on campus 
Wednesday at 3 p.m. in front of the 
Student Union. 

Treen, who it seems has a major 
following on the NSU campus, is 
considered to be one of the more 
conservative candidates for 

Treen, who is pro right-to-work 
and has pushed hard for the North- 
South freeway, takes an extemely 
negative stand on the legalization of 

Students will be able to ask the 
candidate questions at the reception 
for him Wednesday. At the 
reception there will be punch, 
cookies and cokes served. 

Kennedy, who was his next-door 
neighbor in Georgetown, and later 
wrote "The Special Grace," a 
tribute to the slain President, which 
was published in 1964 by Lip- 
pincott. His book "Conversations 
with Kennedy" was published in 
1975 by W.W.Norton & Co. 

Bradlee began his association 
with the Post in 1948, when he 
began a three-year stint as a reporter 
covering federal courts. The State 
Depart menrdraned him in 1951 to 
be a press attache for the U.S. 
Embassy in Paris. 

In 1953, Bradlee joined 
Newsweek's Paris bureau and was 
European correspondent for four 
years. It was a job that took him 
throughout Europe and the Middle 
East, including coverage of the 
Anglo-French invasion of Suez and 
the Algerian rebellion, Cyprus and 

He returned to Washington in 
1957, first as a Newsweek political 
correspondent, later as Washington 
bureau chief. 

Bradlee gained some of his 
nationwide acclaim through his role 
in the Watergate-inspired book "All 
the President's Men," written by 
two of the Post's reporters, Bob 
Woodward and Carl Bernstein. 

The book, which won a Pulitzer 
Prize for excellence in journalism, 
won praise from newsmen and 
critics alike for its authentic por- 
trayal of the atmosphere behind a 
major news story. Bradlee was a 
central figure in the story behind the 
scenes as the two reporters looked to 
him for guidance and assistance 
while uncovering the scandal that 
rocked the nation. 

Also scheduled to serve as NSU 
Distinguished Lecturers during the 
fall semester are famed psychologist 
Dr. Joyce Brothers, and NBC 
television news anchorwoman Kelly 

Report indicates NSU 
Room, board cheap 

Northwestern has one of the most 
economical room and board plans 
of all State Board of Trustees' 
Universities, according to a report 
released late last week. 

The report, a comparison of 
room and board costs for all four- 
year universitiesas compiled by the 
office of Dean of Students 
Frederick Bosarge, says Nor- 
thwestern "is doing very well by its 
students in terms of 1979-80 
comparitive costs as well as in 
variety of food service plans." 

Credit for the competitive costs 
shouid go to Director of Student 
Services Cecil Knotts, the report 
said. Knotts prepares contract 
specifications and otherwise does 
much of the detailed work related to 
price setting for the student services. 

According to the report, NSU has 
the state's cheapest double- 
occupancy room rate, at $240 or 1 1 
percent below the median cost. In 

three of the four other room and 
board categories, Northwestern has 
rates below the state average. The 
only category which NSU exceeds 
the average cost statewide is in the 
five-day meal plan, where the 
University is 22 cents above the 
average rate. 

Additionally, the report says, 
Northwestern is one of only three 
schools to offer both a five and a 
seven-day meal plan; and is the only 
school to have a variable meal plan 
in effect. 

The report says that "in this time 
of increased cost consciousness on 
the part of both students and the 
general public, our very competitive 
costs can be an effective student 
recruiting and retention tool." 

Bosarge's office said that more 
detailed information will be 
distributed among students staff, 
and faculty as soon as possible.

Ideas requested 
To better NSU 

Suggestions from students on 
conditions at NSU are encouraged 
by the Student Services Committee, 
according to Kelly Crowell, 

At the last meeting on Sept. II, 
Cecil Knotts, Director of Student 
Services, fielded questions from the 
committee concerning the area of 
student services. Secretary Crowell 
commented that the meeting was 
very successful and that Knotls had 
answered questions well. 

The committee, which meets 
every Tuesday night at 7:30, in the 
SGA Conference Room, sees as its 
purpose to give NSU new ideas. The 
committee makes suggestions, 
requests, complaints and com- 
pliments to those university 
members concerned. The committee 
also welcomes responses on their 

Southerland named 
Center director 

Mrs. Maxine Southerland, former 
professor of home economics at 
Northwestern State University, has 
been named director and curator of 
the Center for History of Louisiana 
Education at NSU. 

Mrs. Southerland's appointment, 
which becomes effective im- 
mediately, was announced by NSU 
president Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu and 
NSU College of Education dean Dr. 
Robert Alost following approval 
this week by the State Board of 
Trustees for Colleges and 

The new director and curator of 
the center earned bachelor's and 
master's degrees in home 
economics. She served from 1966 to 
1978 on the faculty of Nor- 
thwestern's Department of Home 
Economics as teacher-educator. 

Mrs. Southerland, who is also a 
registered dietitian, holds mem- 
berships in the Louisiana Home 
Economics Association and the 
American Dietetics Association. 

Prior to joining the faculty at 
Northwestern, Mrs. Southerland 
taught in Bossier and Rapides 
Parish public schools from 1943 to 
1966, including 12 years at Bolton 
High School in Alexandria. 

The Center for History of 
Louisiana Education, which is 
housed on the NSU campus, was 
created by the Louisiana legislature 

in 1977. Its purpose is to collect 
memorabilia and items of historic 
educational significance for public 
display and study by historians, 
students and the public. 

One of the primary purposes of 
the center is to enrich and sponsor 
research in the field of education in 
Louisiana while developing specific 
displays for loan to students and 
interested organizations and 
societies throughout the state. 

suggestions from the group. 

The Student Service Committee 
invites students to attend the 
meetings and submit suggestions or 
comments about NSU. "It is 
amazing how much more faculty 
and advisors will listen to students 
than the students realize," Crowell 

The committee has come to the 
aid of the students who would like 
to use university equipment to lift 
weights. They have asked that the 
coliseum weight room be opened for 
student use. 

Finding another place for dances 
was requested. The Student Union 
Ballroom was criticized for being 
too small to accomodate the crowd. 

Campus air-conditioning was 
again in for criticism. Better 
regulation in the Arts and Sciences 
Building was requested. The fourth 
floor is too hot and the other floors 
are too cold, according to the 
committee report. 

A compliment was given to the 
grounds crew for the good job on 
campus. Thanks were expressed for 
the re-surpacing. 

Other suggestions were made 
about the food and placing of lights 
behind Varnado in the new parking 
lots and between the two wings of 
Natchitoches Dormitory. 

Suggestions can be left at the 
SGA office in the Student Union. 

James Mitchell is the president of 
the committee.

A.L. Williams discusses fieldhouse, scheduling 

(The Sauce decided to delve into 
the fieldhouse controversy by going 
straight to the horse's mouth, so to 
speak. The result was this interview 
with easy-talking athletic director 
and head football coach A.L. 
Williams. Sauce Focus Editor 
Michael W. Gallien talked to Coach 
Williams last week in this fieldhouse 
office about the fieldhouse and 
scheduling problems as well as other 
things. Following is the text of that 

Sauce:Coach, what car, you tell 
me about the fieldhouse weight 
room problem and what are your 
feelings on the subject? 

Williams: Well, I am sort of 
disappointed. You know we work 
real, real hard to try to help the 
students all we can. I understand 
their gripes but they've got to 
understand where we are in this. 
We've tried this before down here 
and we lost all of our equipment, 
our weights, and we had to go down 
with our football camp money and 
have some more made. I don't 
think they really understand. And I 
think this must be only a few 
that... Have they checked across the 

Sauce: No, I don't think so. 

Williams: Well, it just doesn't 
happen. Nowhere! Nowhere! No, 
it doesn't happen anymore. 
Number one, we're not running a 
recreation area over here, we're 
running a working area over here. 
It's a functional area. We're having 
to work and all of this is tied in with 
the training room, the dressing 
rooms, the meeting rooms, and all. 
The problem is being worked on 
through other channels. 

The students have got to un- 
derstand that we wouldn't let them 
in there in the first place without 
supervision. We've got an athlete 
sidelined right now because of 
weights. These things are 
dangerous, unless you know what 
you are doing. We don't even let 
our athletes in there unless a coach 
is with them. 1 don't think they are 
looking at both sides. We're not 
against the students at all, we're 100 
percent with them. It's just like the 
band instruments, for instance. 
They are for Northwestern's band, 
but they just can't turn them over to 
th? student., ll just doesn't work 
that way. 

When I was coaching in high 
school, we tried it. We had it 
opened to P.E. classes and we even 
had to close it off. Later on, we 
were able to get some P.E. weights. 

Sauce: This building was paid for 
by a capital outlay from the state 
and no student funds were used. Is 
this correct? 

Williams: Yes, that's right. No 
student funds were spent. 

Sauce: Have you had any in- 
cidents with students concerning the 
use of the building? 

Williams: No, no, the ones we 
have talked to...I don't know if they 
understood or not. Some of them 
might have been disappointed and 
everything. We tried to explain to 
them our situation. 

You see, we have to take the 
marginal players to a point. We are 
not going to get the players that 
Tennessee, that Texas, that LSU, 
that Mississippi is going to get. 
We're going to get the player just 
below that and we've got to build 
t'uusc students as much as we 

possibly can. 

Sauce: You mean that LSU is 
going to get the most important 

Williams: Yes, and they are going 
to be bigger athletes. They won't 
take the smaller athletes and we've 
got to do what we can to develop 
him physically as much as we can, 
along with the mental end of it. We 
spend a great deal of time... right 
now our football players are in there 
working out three days a week and 
so our basketball players. All of our 
athletes are in there, in and out, all 
day long, but it's a supervised type 
thing. I think if our people will stop 
and look at it, I think they'll un- 
derstand. It just can't be thrown 
open. It's been tried and it just 
doesn't work. They want real good 
athletes and I don't blame them. 
They have have just got to un- 
derstand what helps make good 
athletics. We put a machine outside 
in the coliseum for them to get to, 
but we finally had to lock it up 
because it was being torn up. I 
suppose some of these people are 
not students, but how do we know 
that. Later on, there will be some 
classes over here and all students 
will be able to get involved. 

Sauce: Is the field house 
everything you expected it to be? Is 
it everything you wanted? 

Williams: Oh yes! It's so much 
more functional. For instance the 
Saints came in. 

Sauce: That's one thing I wanted 
to ask you about. 

Williams: The Saints came in and 
said, "We've been all over the 
nation and we are really impressed 
with the functional end of it." 

You know, we have something 
that functions. ..we've got a place to 
meet, we've got a place to work. 
We wanted all these things. It's so 
much easier to get to things. Down 
in the Coliseum, we were stuck in a 
corner. You had to go all the way 
around the building to get a towel, 
for instance. It wasn't really 
workable. This building is really 
super. That is what the Saints said, 
they'd never seen one so useful. 
Dick Nolan went through the entire 
facility twice. He was very im- 

You know, another problem 
we've got is that we are the only 
school in the state that has to share 
its facilities with area high schools. 
We don't mind. It works a hardship 
on us to a point, but we try to work 
with them so that it works out. 
They don't have a stadium so why 
not. These things happen. And of 
course you've got the band. They 
need the field, too. We try to work 
that out as well. 

Sauce: Well then, this whole 
complex will be a definite plus for 
our recruiting, won't it? 

Williams: All the way through. I 
hop you realize (pointing) there's 
the baseball field, over here is the 
Coliseum for basketball, and in 
between is the tennis facility, track 
over here, and football here. You 
see our entire complex is right here 
and this building is sort of the center 
of it all. Excuse me for just a 

(Coach Williams pauses for a 
moment to take a phone call. He 
told me afterwards that it was one 
of the area high schools trying to get 
the field to practice.)

moment before tee-off time in the golf tournament whi^h was 
part of Spring Football Festival Weekend. 

We try to work with everybody, 
as best we can. That's just 
like... maybe you don't remember 
this, at one time we didn't have a 
side of the stadium for the students. 
We asked the architect to go ahead 
and finish this side up first, to give 
the students all of the facilities they 
had on the other side. We wanted 
our students to have something. 
And immediately, we (the football 
team) moved over there with our 
students. It's been great for us. 
Our students are really important to 
us. They always will be. 

Sauce: Coach, I know you've 
been asked time and time again* 
about the scheduling problems, but 
I was wondering if you think the 
completion of the athletic complex 
might help us with future 

Williams: The scheduling 
problems weren't because we didn't 
have the facilities. This will help a 
great deal, no doubt about it. The 
schedule is made up three, four, five 
years in advance. 

Sauce: Well, are schools wanting 
larger guarantees these days, of is it 
something else? 

Williams: Well, what we want is 
to be in a conference, but we don't 
want to be in one that wouldn't be 
any better than being independent. 
We've applied to the Southland 
Conference; we'd like to be in the 
Southland Conference. In that 
conference, one blackball will keep 
you out and we got a blackball. I 
really don't know why. Sup- 
posedly, there would be too many 
Louisiana schools if we were 
allowed to join. 

Sauce: That's really a lame ex- 
cuse, isn't it? 

Williams: Yeah, it really is. 
Northeast is the same way. They 
had the same vote against them. 

At any rate, we were all set to play 
Arkansas State. We were to play up 
there three years, which we did and 
they were to play down here two 
years. This was to be their second

Here are a few news capsules 
from other university campuses: 
LSU-Shreveport from the Almagest

The USM administration has 
° r dered the removal of all cigarette 

machines from the campus. 

USM has eliminated most Friday 
afternoon classes 2 p.m. The new 
scheduling calls for almost all late 
Monday-Wednesday classes to meet 
for an hour and 15 mintues, thus 
eliminating the need for Friday 
afternoon classes. 

USM's enrollment has reached an 
all-time high. Almost 10,000 
students registered for the fall 
semester. Late registration was 
expected to push the total past the 
10,000 mark for the first time in the 
schools history. 

The USM Bookstore will no 
longer cash students checks. 
Spokesmen for the bookstore felt 
the students were using them strictly 
as a check cashing service. 
Nicholls State from the Nicholls 

University Police are looking for 
a con man who conned two Student 
Union employees out of $10 each. 
The con man used the old "60 
pounds of shrimp for $10.00" ploy. 
The man has not been seen since 
then. Neither have the shrimp. 

Nicholl's fall play production will 
be "The Rimers of Eldritch." 
Auditions are now being held for 
the play, which will be Nicholls' 
entry in the American College 
Theater Festival. 

LSU-Baton Rouge from the Daily 

A man was arrested in the LSU 
Union for possession of a 
hypodermic syringe. Campus police 

arrested Samuel A. Hamilton, 31, in 
a parking lot outside the Union. 
Hamilton was orginally begin 
questioned in connection with a 
quick-change scheme when the 
syringe was discovered. Possession 
of a hypodermic syringe is a 
violation of state law. 

Students applying for date tickets 
for LSU football games can now 
pick up their tickets for non-student 
dates. The only catch is they had to 
be picked to get the tickets in a 
special lottery. The "winners" are 
allowed to purchase one game ticket 
for the nominal fee of $10. Among 
the many other privileges, the 
student must give up his seat in the 
LSU student section to sit with his 
date high in the north end Zone. 
Fall rush was an overwhelming 
success for LSU's sororities. The 
total number of girls participating 
was 1126. That number is up from 
last year's 1056. Bids were issued to 
72 percent of the girls. 

LSU was picked to finish eighth 
in the race for the Southeastern 
Conference football title by the SEC 
"Sky Writers". Alabama, naturally 
was picked to take the title. 

LSU's Varsity Club, founded in 
Feb., 1979, has raised over $300,000 
to support LSU athletics. The funds 
raised by the group are to be used 
only athletic scholarships and to 
make capital improvements within 
the athletic department. 

year, and they broke the contract. 
The contract in those days was set 
up wih only a $2500 penalty clause. 
That's what everybody was writing 
then. Now, we've upped our 
penalty clause. 

What they did is very unfortunate 
and is a sad situation. The coaches 
I've worked with in the passt, if they 
told you something they'd stick by 
it. This is a new coaching staff up 
there, and I would have found it 
hard to believe for the old ad- 
ministration to do something like 
this. We had a very fine relationship 
with them. They did this in May. 
There's no way. You wouldn't 
believe how many schools I called to 
get another game. And we almost 
had one. ..against Angelo State. 
They were lasst year's Division II 

Their athletic director and head 
coach wanted to play us here for the 
first game of the season. I wouldn't 
have done us any good to play them 
over there. We were holding out, 
hoping to play someone at home. 
We just exhausted every effort. 
Their president refused, saying, 
"No, we've won 16 games in a row 
and we want to open the season at 
home undefeated." They were very 
nice about it. 

We talked to several schools that 
filled late, but we just didn't have 
any luck. It is very difficult to work 
these things out. To give you an 
idea (pointing over my shoulder), all 
these board schedules that I've 
worked on all summer. I call 
schools every week and we are 
trying to get it all worked out. 

Sauce: What about a conference 
including Southeastern, Nicholls, 
Northeast, NSU, and maybe a 
couple of other schools? 

Williams: We all met and talked 
about this before. We wanted to get 
Grambling and Southern and any 
other state school that wanted to 
join. You know, the old Gulf States 
Conference was a very, very fine 
conference. Common sense will tell 

you it's more economical to be in a 
conference made up of state 
schools. There are better rivalries 
that are better draws. You've got a 
natural rivalry almost every 
weekend. For instance South- 
western. ..they dropped us. It 
wasn't because we weren't playing 
good football with them. We had 
beaten them two out of the last three 
years and they beat us with six 
seconds left last year. Against them 
year before last, they drew 29,000 
fans which was the second largest 
crowd in their history. Now they 
are having to pay another school a 
lot of money to come in and play 

Sauce: Why would they do that? 

Williams: I really don't know . I 
don't understand it. It's one of the 
oldest rivalries in the state. You 
know we're in Division I-AA, and 
we would like to play more I-AA 
teams. I'm sure we fit in 1-AA 
along with these other state schools. 
Sooner or later, I'm sure the NCAA 
will do something about that, but 
right now there aren't any 1-AA 
schools around. Now , Nicholls and 
Southeastern are in a qualifying 
status, which means a probationary 
status, and they'll be in that for a 
couple of years and then they will be 
in 1-AA. That will help us. 

I contacted every Ohio Valley 
Conference school because they are 
I-AA and they were full up. They 
just din't have anything. We're 
hopeful of getting them somewhere 
down the line, so we can compare. 

We even tried getting in- 
tersectional games. We spent some 
time trying to get New Mexico. ..I 
called those people, but they just 
didn't have anything. Maybe we 
didn't want them after the way they 
beat Tech. But we contacted 
everybody we could. ..Nevada-Reno 
and Nevada-Las Vegas... we con- 
tacted everybody. We just weren't 
able to fill at that late date. 

The thing is we should always 
have our five home games and at 
least four. 1 thought we had five, 
but they dropped us at the last 
second. I'd like to see us play 
Grambling, but they had other 

Sauce: But the conference with 
Nicholls, Southeastern, Northeast, 
and us, is that just not enough 
schools to start a conference? 

Williams: My suggestion, to be 
completely frank with you, was let's 
go ahead and form the conference 
with four, hoping the we'll pick up 
one here and there, although the 
NCAA won't recognize you much 
unless you have six teams. You're 
not going to get any automatic bids 
or anything like that. That wasn't 
my objective at the time; I wanted to 
get something started. 

The problem with that is that 
we're I-AA and we're allowed 75 
scholarships, while Northeast is 
Division I and they are allowed 95. 
They don't want to come back and 
give up those extra scholarships. I 
told them, "Look, we're all three 
going to play you anyway, so I 
wouldn't be for making you cut 
back to 75 scholarships." They said 
that is just didn't have any ad- 
vantages for them right now. ..until 
we get six teams. They would all be 
receptive to a six team conference. 

Sauce: What are the advantages 
of Division I-AA& 

Williams: Should we ever get 
strong enough, there are some 
playoffs in I-AA. We have a I-AA 
national champion. You know, this 
is a real incentive. I like that. I 
think it's good that we could be the 
1-AA national champions. I think 
that's how all of the divisions 
should be set up. 

Sauce: Even the big boys in 
Division 1& 

Williams: Oh yes! I would like to 
see it worked out where it wouldn't 
be a mythical type thing. Right 
now, you don't know if this team 
could beat this team. 1 would like to 
see the playoffs work up through 
the bowls, with a super-champion, 
so to speak, at the end. I think the 
big bowls could still hold their 
games and not lose anything, but 
they would be involved in a playoff 
system. Those people could work 
these things out. It's just a matter of 
sitting down and doint it. I know 
there would be some complications, 
but over the years it could be 
worked out. I think it would be 
something we'd all look forward to 
seeing. The only thing is that 
conference play would probably 
have to start a little bit earlier. 

Sauce: Well, coach, we appreciate 
you taking the time to talk to us. 

Williams: Well, 1 just hope 
everyone understands. Heaven 
knows we're not fighting with out 
student body. We are not just 
Northwestern's football team when 
we take the field. We are 
representatives of Northwestern 
State University. That's why we 
want the student body behind us, 
because we are a part of them. 
They've just got to understand that 
we've got to have priorities and that 
this facility has got to last us for 
years. We intend to take care of it. 
The weight problem is being worked 
on through other channels and 
we're going to have some equipment 
for them. I just hope they'll look at 
it from both sides and I think they 
will understand.

courses and curricula which far 
exceed the eight hour classroom 
participation required in this course. 
For example, students in their senior 
year in Medical Technology and in 
the junior and senior years in 
Radiologic Technology receive only 
twelve hours credit per semester and 
are actually involved in lecture- 
laboratory from 36 to 40 hours per 
week. In essence, requirements are 
determined based upon the 
knowledge the students should 
obtain in that course and not 
primarily upon the credit hour value 
of the course. It is difficult for me to 
believe that you would experience 
problems in obtaining tran- 
sportation to and from the high 
school. Other students involved in 
similar instructional situations seem 
to solve this problem. I spend many 
of my lunch breaks on the road, and 
find it conducive to good weight

Doug Ireland's Notebook 


They said it would never happen. 
It just wasn't possible here. In 
Baton Rouge, always. In Lake 
Charles, certainly. In Monroe, 
probably. In Ruston, usually. But 
never in Natchitoches, and 
definitely not at Northwestern. 
People here just never could unite to 
support anything, let alone a college 
football team. First of all, the team 
couldn't win... and to boot, the 
people were losers themselves, they 

Who are "they"? Names and 
faces don't really matter. What does 
matter is "they" were wrong. Last 
week proves it. With all the griping 
about the schedule, and the con- 
troversy surrouding student use of 
the fieldhouse, Natchitoches and 
NSU turned out 11,207 strong 
Saturday night to support the 
Demon football team. 

The support was evident in more 
than crowd number, as the en- 
thusiasm and excitement created 
more than a slight bit of noise in 
Turpin Stadium. 

But even more heartening to see 
was the crowd at last Thursday 
night's pep rally, and the 
tremendous amount of spirit 
exhibited during and after that 

It was great to see some genuinely 
fired-up Demon football players 
running out onto the turf as they 
were introduced. It seems as though 
this year's crop of seniors, along 
with the new additions to the 
coaching staff, can really get the 
Demons pumped-up and ready. 

And it is very encouraging to be 
able to drive around campus and see 
all the dorms decorated up with 
displays backing the Demons. That 
is, it would be encouraging... if it 
happened. It happened in only one 

Vote 'Yes 9 

Tomorrow is the day I have been 
waiting for since mid-summer, when 
we reluctantly made the decision to 
attempt to obtain a $1 fee increase 
for the Current Sauce. 

Tomorrow, we get a look into the 
future-and you will determine the 
course of history, as far as the Sauce 
is concerned. 

A 'yes' vote will let us know that 
you approve of the changes we have 
made in format, coverage, outlook, 
and atttitude. A 'yes' vote will also 
ease our overwhelming financial 
burden, and will ensure that the 
Sauce, as we know it, will be around 
for a few more years yet. 

After the vote tomorrow, we will 
be able to accurately assess our 
situation. We will learn if you want 
us to continue to improve and give 
you a quality college newspaper. 

We have tried our best to revise 
the Sauce so that it will be a paper 
that will truly serve you and the 
entire Northwestern community. 

We hope that you have been 
informed and entertained by our 
first fall issues. We want these first 
three issues to serve as an indication 
as to what you can expect from us 
this fall. 

We don't believe that everything 
we have done with the Sauce this 
fall has necessarily been perfect. We 
do believe, though, that, for a 
change the paper is heading in the 
direction you want it to take. We 
also pledge that regardless of the 
result tomorrow, we will continue to 

try our best and work as hard as 
possible to give you a paper worthy 
of its readers. 

Now, we sincerely ask you for 
your help. 

The Current Sauce is at a turning 
point in its' 65-year history. Only 
with your support and backing can 
we hope to progress. Without your 
help, regression is sadly inevitable. 


Publishing costs have risen faster 
than gasoline prices. Since 1969, 
printing costs alone have increased 
over 700 percent. During that same 
period, fees for Current Sauce have 
increased only 35 percent. 

It boils down to this. For three 
years now, the paper has operated 
on or near a deficit budget. This 
summer, the University announced 
that it would not allow any more 
dificit spending. With the fantastic 
rise in publishing costs, if we don't 
get financial help now, drastic 
reductions in staff and paper 
content and size will be necessary. 

There is no way the paper can 
withstand any kind of a reduction 
and maintain even the level of 
"quality" we have had in the recent 

We have tried our best. We have 
exhaused all alternatives. Our only 
hope is that you will support us 
tomorrow, and in the future. 

We can do nothing without your 
help. With your support, we can do 

The choice is yours. 

Good news 

I've got to admit that in the midst 
of the weekly mass confusion that 
we go through to put out this paper, 
every once-in-a-while we get a 
break, or something nice happens to 
one of us. 

Well last week we had a little bit 
of good news filter in. 

Mike Gallien, our Focus Editor, 
received word last week that the 
1978-79 Potpourri was.n-amed as a 
"Second Class Yearbook" 
nationwide, one of the higher 

honors for a yearbook, and 
especially for its editor. 

Mike was the editor of last year's 
book, and if you could see what a 
tight budget he had to work with, it 
really is amazing that he could 
produce as award-winning book. 

Mike did a great job as Potpourri 
editor, and at the rate he's going, he 
may do an even better job as Sauce 
Focus Editor. 

Congratulations, Mike. 

Don't forget to 
vote tomorrow 

Abortion issue is touchy subject 

dorm this past week, and that dorm 
did a superior job with a minimum 
amount of money and time used. 

Now, before I explain, I want to 
say this is not meant to shame any 
residents of the other campus 
dorms, but just to show what can be 
accomplished with just a little ef- 

Credit a few diligent and spirited 
people in Rapides Dorm, led by 
Mrs. Hazel Evans, the dormitory's 
house director, and Larry Hall, the 
chairman of the Rapides Spirit 
Committee. The two coordinated 
the decoration and displays which as 
of press time remained up in the 
front entry-way of the dorm. 

The display, as best as I can 
describe it from memory, shows a 
giant Demon about to punish a 
befuddled Lumberjack by "ringing 
his neck." There are also smaller 
displays on each of several bulletin 
boards in the lobby area. 

Looking at the display, you might 
think it cost a lot of money and took 
a lot of time to do. Actually, all it 
took was $40 out of the Associated 
Mens Students general fund, and a 
few hours of work by resident artists 
James Byrd and Paul Burns. Also 
assisting were Greg Stephens and 
Malcolm Kellum. 

It is the little things like this that 
so oten go unnoticed and 
unrewarded, although they con- 
tribute much to school spirit. Why 
every dorm couldn't do something 
similar to what Rapides did last 
week escapes me. It wouldn't take 
too much effort and AMS or AWS 
funds could be used to cover the 
expenses. Certainly there are more 
than seven talented, school-spirited 
persons on campus who are willing 
to do a little extra to build spirit. 

How about it, y'all? 

by Mary Beth Walls 
Sauce Opinion Editor 

"No way. It's morally wrong. I 
counldn't take the life of a person, 
which is what an unborn child is." 
Obviously, this student (who 
preferred not to give her name) felt 
very strongly on the subject of this 
SauceSurvey -abortion. 

Abortion has always been a 
highly controversial issue on all 
fronts- legally, religiously, and 
morally. In yesteryear, the subject 
was strictly taboo in respectable 
circles, but old women with secret 
herbs to induce an early labor were 
visited fairly often. Society then 
graduated to the backroom 
"doctor"-infamous for coat 
hangers, vacuum cleaners, etc. The 
Supreme Court decided that 
abortion was, in almost all cir- 
cumstances, the right of every 
woman. But that has not lessened 
the emotional impact of the subject. 

Students polled all had a definite 
opinion on the issue, whether for or 
against. The reasons for their 
feelings, however, basically ran the 
same. I found that many students 
did not want their names printed, 
perhaps because they thought their 
peers would ridicule or tease them 

on their stand. 

One young man from Bossier felt 
that abortion depended very much 
upon financial considerations. 
"Sometimes it's good-sometimes 
bad. If she can't afford to have and 
raise a baby, then maybe she should 
have an abortion. If she has money, 
though, she should probably have 
the baby." 

Jana Moore, a junior from 
Eunice, said "I don't believe in it, 
but there probably are exceptions. If 
keeping the baby would be 
hazardous to the mother's health, or 
if there's medical proof that the 
baby would be mentally retarded or 
something like that, it should be 
permitted. That's when the mother 
should have the right to choose. But 
this is such an emotional issue, it's 
hard to make a decision." 

A female junior from Many felt 
very strongly about the issue." I 
believe in the right of abortion. 
Because if a girl doesn't want, or 
can't afford, raising a child, then 
the child should never be brought 
into the world." 

Family background played an 
obivious part in the answers of some 
students. For instance, one 
Shreveport senior stated her 
opinion, "Personally, I don't 

Radical Rag 

Does anybody 

(Editor's Note: The Radical Rag 
is a new column in the Sauce. Copy 
for this column is left under the 
door of the Current Sauce every 
Friday morning. It is always there 
when we get to the newsroom and 
none of the staff really knows for 
sure who writes it or where it comes 

Personally, we believe that it is 
written by the soul of a freshman of 
yesterday who got lost in Caldwell 
Hall and must forever wander its 
corridors, continually searching for 
his advisor, which, since we can 
never find ours, he will probably 
never find his. 

While searching, our lost soul 
takes a break now and then to 
comment upon the state of the 
university and drops us a line every 
Friday to express his opinion. 

The opinions expressed in the 
Radical Rag are not necessarily 
those of the administration, faculty, 
student body, and Sauce staff, but 
they are controversial as hell so we 
decided to print it anyway.) 

We are definitely impressed. 
Congratulations to the football 
team on a well deserved victory. We 
are sure that it was through team 
effort and participation that we did 
so well. 

Speaking of participation, lack of 
it is one of the blights on this 

I'm not speaking about pep rally 
participation or football par- 

ticipation, but bout participating in 
events that affect your lifestyle 
while you are here on campus. 

It seems that a terminal case of 
apathy has affected all aspects of 
student life. 

For example, for the past few 
years, a few of the students have 
been waging war with the ad- 
ministration to allow beer on 

During the spring semester, some 
sort of victory was won by the 
students, and beer is now allowed 
on campus. Unfortunately, the 
regulations which are put on the 
consumption of that beer, are so 
complicated and confusing, that it 
makes the Dead Sea scrolls and the 
blue lines of hockey seem simple. 

While a firm majority of the 
student body support beer on 
campus and would like to be 
allowed to have alcohol in their 
dorm rooms like they do at LSU, no 
one will stand behind those that do 
go to the administration to com- 

All the students know what they 
want and what they feel they should 
have, but no one wants to put in the 
little bit of time and effort it would 
take to get something done. 

Someone gets up and says, "We 
should have beer on campus" or 
"There should be a relaxation of 
visitation hours" and everybody 
says "Yeah, Yea!" and then the 
issue dies out. And then everybody 
complains because nothing is being 
done to get the beer or the'

Terry McCarty informed the senate of what 
had been discussed in the SAC meeting in 
NBaton Rouge Sept. 6, 1979. Most important 
was the new ruling on the fee assessments. He 
also announced that NSU was trying to set up 
a way for students to register to vote. 

James Mitchell briefly explained his position 
in keeping good attendance in the meetings, 
and for this reason he had to expell Ron

believe in it. Partly because of the 
way I was raised, and partly because 
I think it is killing someone. I 
wouldn't couldn't do it.*' 

Kathy Breedlove, a 4-1 from 
Coushatta-feels "If it would 
positively be detrimental to the 
woman's health, or to the child, 
then it would be acceptable." 

One of the most candid 
statements of all came from Joe 
Matheny, a sophomore from 
Shreveport. "I'm against abortion, 
most of the time. But in some in- 
stances, it may be necessary, such as 
cases of forced rape. Then it should 
be provided for. But as freely as 
birth control is available today, I 
don't think they abortions are 
necessary. I don't think girls should 
have abortions simply because of a 
good time one night or no self- 
restraint. I do believe that guys 
nowadays should have enough 
common sense and self-control to 
accept some of the responsibilities 
of modern-day dating." 

A Leesville senior, Darrell Gordy, 
was in favor of abortion-* 'I'm for 
it. It is a woman's right, why should 
she have to go through everything 
concerned with pergnancy especially 
if she has taken all the precautions, 
and still becomes pregnant?" 

One young man from Bossier wa$ 
torn in his decision. "It's morally 
wrong, but I've seen situations 
where it would save people a lot o[ 
grief-so it really depends upon th e 

Chris Basco, a sophomore 
transfer student from Pinevilfe 
thought for a couple of minutes 
before phrasing her answer, 
"Personally, I'm against abortion! 
But a woman should have th* 
option to obtain one legally when it 
is neede. However, it cannot be a 
one-person decision. Both parties 
should discuss all of the options, 
and then decide what course of 
action to take." 

One Jonesboro junior felt that it 
"should be left up to the individual 
to choose." 

So it seems that most of the 
students polled are basically against 
abortion. Everyone surveyed, 
though, felt that extenuating cir- 
cumstances such as rape, incest, and 
endangering the life of either the 
mother or unborn child would be 
legitimate reasons for abtaining an 

But as was stated before, this is a 
very emotional issue, one that is 
very personal and hard to decide 
upon until perhaps faced with the 




really caret 

relaxation of visitation hours. 

You can't really blame the Ad- 
ministration, they are the ruling 
power and are going to try and get 
away with what they can, but it is up 
to you not to let them get away with 

When will you realize that the 
university is supposed to be run for 
the students and not the ad- 
ministration. You are the ones that 
pay the exorbidant fees at 
registration. It is your money that 
goes to keep this university func- 
tioning, not the administration. 

Not until you people decide to 
back up what you believe, will 
anything change. One or two people 
can get up and propose a change 
and everybody will say that they're 
behind them. But when it comes 
down to the point of doing 
something about it nobodv wants to

the problem 

How important is knowing 
foreign language to you? Did you 
know that with a language skill 
added to your other skills, you 
might double chances of getting the 
job you want? 

It is a proven fact that foreign 
language, especially Spanish is 
beneficial in the United States as it is 
today. There are now 20 million 
Spanish Americans, and that 
number is on the rise every day. 
That might tell you something about 
the importance of the Spanish 
language in the United States. The 
U.S. is currently the fourth largest 
Spanish-speaking country in the 
world today, and we're close to 
becoming bilingual. 

Now I know that when you are a 
young student selecting a college 
major, you certainly try to avoid a 
majpr that requires a set amount of 
foreign language courses. But you 
don't realize that by accepting the 
fact that you are required to take a 
foreign, preferably Spanish and 
more IMPORTANTLY Spanish, 
you are giving yourself a sort of 


■«m« M imMttiH 





An important question is this. 
Why do our educational systems as 
a whole not require courses in 
Spanish? Go to Texas, of 
California, or Florida, and even 
parts of Louisiana, and see the 
number of Spanish-Americans that 
abide there. Almost a tenth of the 
total population of the U.S. is 
Spanish speaking. 

The result is that by our 
educational systems not requiring a 
set amount of Spanish courses, we 
are almost completely ignorant of 
the language, and in turn the 
cultural knowledge of other 

Another question to ponder is 
why does Northwestern, and yes 
other state universities, require only pt. 20 
Liberal Arts majors to have a set U Killei 
amount of foreign language? & 26 
Doesn't anyone think that its im- icounte 
portant for an education major, or a t. 4 an( 
science and technology major, or t ] j a 
especially a business major to have a Itbad, a 
knowledge of a foreign language, 1. 3]' 
especially Spanish?

Northwestern's Chapter 
of the Student Council for 
Exceptional Children 
started with a bang on Sept. 
6. 24 students attended 
along with their sponsor, 
Dr. Kirby Detraz, and 
another member of the 
Special Education staff, Dr. 
Tarol Michaelis. 

Mrs. Judy Viers spoke to 
the Chapter concerning the 
mentally handicapped and 
shared the joys and the 
sorrows of working with 
these children. Questions 
were answered and much 
new information was 
gained by the new S.C.E.C. 
members concerning these 
special children. 

Following the speaker, 
refreshments were served 
and the business of the 
chapter was discussed. 
Committees were set up and 
a project got underway 
concerning help to a student 
who has dyslexia and is 
unable to read the texts for 
his classes. Students from 
the chapter volunteered to 
help him record his books 
on a taperecorder. 

These are some of the 
things Northwestern's 
S.C.E.C. chapter is in- 
volved in. We encourage 
any students who are in- 
terested in the Special 
Education field and this 
includes all areas of Special 
Education, to join us at our 
next meeting on Oct. 4, at 8 
p.m. in Room 105C of the 
Teacher Education Center.

and Delaine Brown, 
reporter. The faculty ad- 
visor for the '79-80 school 
year is Mrs. Sadie Thomas. 

The chapter discussed 
attending a LACUS 
workshop for District 3 that 
is to be held Sept. 22 at the 
Teacher Educa- tion 
Center. Ideas for projects 
for the upcoming year were 
mentioned and various 
committee chairmen were 
appointed. Mrs. Thomas 
brought to the attention of 
the group that the Annual 
LACUS Conference would 
be held in noe at the 
Civic Center on Oct. 12 and 
13. Many of the members 
are also members of 
LACUS and plan to attend 
the conference. 

Northwestern State University's cheerleader 
squad for 1979-80 made its first public ap- 
pearance Saturday night during the NSU-

SGA Class Senator Candidates 

(Editor's note: Every time an 
election rolls around and candidates 
get ready to write their statements 
for the Sauce, we always seem to 
run into a communcation problem. 
We tell the candidates not to exceed 
a set number of words, but they 
always do anyway. We thought if 
we upped the length of the 
statements from 50 to 75 words, we 
might eliminate the problem. We 
were wrong. 

Most of the candidates were very 
considerate, and carefully counted 
their words. Some either didn't, or 
couldn't, count too well. We went 
back and almost cut the guilty 
parties' statements off in mid- 
sentence, but at the last moment we 
decided that would be tacky. In- 
stead, we just entirely eliminated the 
final sentence when a writer went 
over the 75 work limit. You won't 
be able to tell who did exceed the 
limit and who didn't, except that 
some of the long statements sound 
sort of halfway finished. 

Enough said about that. These 
statements are the only ones we 
received before our deadline. The 
pictures were supplied to us by the 
SGA, and were taken by the NSU 
photo lab). 

I would appreciate your voie for Sophomore Class 
Senator because I feel (hat since this is my third semesrer at 
NSU, 1 am belter qualified to serve you. I am familiar with 
(he school and would handle the situations that arise fairly. 
My main concern is towards the students of NSU. So with 
your help, your voice will be heard in the studeni govern- 
ment of Northwestern. 

Hello, freshmen Demons! I'm Susanne Crawford, a 
candidate for SGA Senator. You chose wisely in atiending 
NSU. and will again in selecting your representatives to 
SGA. I feel my Studeni Council experience in high school 
qualifies me fo$ this role. So when you vole on Sepi. 19, I 
hope you eleci me, Susanne Crawford, for SGA Freshman 
Senator. Thank you. 

I'm Sherne Matison and I would like to represent you. the 
sophomore class, here at NSU. As your Senator. I would 
dedicaie my time to working with the Student Governing 
Board and in keeping with the Student's best interest. When 
you vote, please remember me, Sherrie Matison. for 
sophomore Senaior. 

I have been actively involved in SGA since elementarv 
school and while in high school held the office of secretary 
treasurer. I believe I have the necessary leadership abilities 10 
be an effective class senator, and I am willing 10 work for 
you as well as the entire student body. Please put your faith 
in me and I'll work to make this the year of the Demon. 

I. Anthony Butler, do not seek the position of Class 
Senator because there is a vacancy. I'm seeking the position 
because I feel I can best represent the Senior Class in the 
SGA. I pledge myself to give the senior clan a stronger voice 
in the Senate. Thank you. 

I, Keith Richards, feel that I have the qualifications to run 
for Freshman Class Senator. My experience in high school 
gave me great preparation for a job of this type. Since I have 
been at NSU, I can see that all students are not satisfied, but 
I will work to better living for al regardless of race. 

A university operates as well as its students work together 
with its faculty and administration. Since the student 
government is our chance to make changes and improve, we 
need people who are willing to work and help make these 
changes. With your support I will help to change and better 
our campus. 

To be a good senator one must be willing to give time, 
effort, and do his best to stay informed on issues and aware 
of student opinions. If elected I would do my best in those 

My name is Mike Calamari and I am running for the office 
of Freshman Class Senator. One of my reasons for seeking 
this office is my interest in government. This interest is so 
strong that I have chosen Political Science as my college 
major. But the main reason I want to be your senator is to 
serve our school. Remember working together we will all

three years and was on the committees to work for our class 
socials. I would consider it a pleasure and a honor to serve as 
SGA Freshman Senator. 

Some of the things I hope to accomplish by being 
Freshman Class Senator are letting the students know ihat 
any thing they want done or changed wilt be considered. I 
also want to do as much as possible to benefit the faculty as 
well as the students. Most of alt I want to be a part in seeing 
that NSU is one of the best schools in La.

preciate any support the juniors here could give me. I am

Sophomores thank you for the support you gave me as I 
represented you as Fresman Senator. Again I am back to say

senior, a member of the Greek System, and a concerned

necessary to describe the motive behind my seeking the office 
of class senator. I'm Regina Young, a Pre-Med major and a

Sauce Sports Editor 

For a wide receiver who played only 
sparingly lasi year, and for a quarterback who 
was deemed loo small to play college football. 
Randy Liles and Kenny Philibert. have certainly 
quieted the critics. 

Philibert and Liles connected on touchdow n 
passes of 22 and 34 yards plus a two-point 
conversion as the Northwestern Demons 
defeated the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks 
27-21 in a game that was marred by 20 
penalties, 13 of which went against NSU, much 
to Chief Caddo's displeasure. The Demon win 
allowed the big Indian, the winner's prize, to 
remain at NSU at least another year. 

Philibert also scored the first Demon 
touchdown on a two-yard run with nine 
minutes to go in the first quarter after Darrell 
Toussaint recovered a fumble by SFA quar- 
terback Herby Baker at the Lumberjack sixteen 
yard-line. Philbert's run came on a third and 
goal situation and gave the Demons an early 6-0 
lead after the point after kick failed. 

SFA then marched 85 yards in a brilliant 16- 
play drive that was climaxed by a one-yard dive 
by Paul Hood on fourth down to take the lead. 
The big play in the drive was a twenty-nine yard 
pass interference penalty whistled against the 
Demons that gave the 'Jacks a first and goal at 
the NSU 7-yard line. 

Philibert then found Liles in the left corner 
of the end zone four minutes later for the duo's 
first TD connection which recaptured the lead 
for the Demons at 13-7. The 22-yard pass play 
capped a short 35-yard drive in just three plays 
that was set up after a short punt of only 26 
yards by SFA's Ricky Kinsey. The 'Jacks had 
been driven back deep into their own territory 
when punt returner Mark Riggs bobbled and 
chased an NSU punt all the way back to the 
Axmen eight-yard line. 

Riggs' pursuit of the bouncing ball resulted 
in a 75-yard punt for Demon Barry Rubin, who 
is punting regularly for the first time ever at 

Wood Working \ Wright defensive star 

NSU. The kick stands as a new school record, 
wiping out a 72-yard punt by Theophile Scott 
against Ouachita in 1941 . 

The Demons scored again 45 seconds later 
when tailback Mark Schroeder took a pitchout 
at the 12-yard line and dashed in for the score. 
NSU got the ball on another fumble by Baker 
which" was forced by a strong hit from 
linebacker David Wright, who was in on a 
team-high 16 tackles, and recovered by James 
Lilley. Schroeder's burst gave the Demons a 19- 
7 halftime lead. 

The Lumberjacks, whose record dropped to 
1-1 with' the loss, did manage to shut dow n 
explosive Joe Delaney, who could muster only 
35 yards on 16 carries. Delaney threatened to 
break one on several occasions, but his longest 
run from scrimmage turned out to be only 12 
yards, not a typical Joe D. statistic. 

"We hurt ourselves badly with penalties and 
a lot of that is because we didn't play with 
intensity throughout the game," said head 
coach A.L. Williams. "We will have to cut 
down on our penalties, but 1 am very happy 
with the win. SFA is a much better team than 
the one we faced last season, especially their 
defensive unit." 

The 'Jacks got into gear and threatened to 
make it close on the first possession of the 
second half. They took the kickoff and mar- 
ched 61 yards to the Demon 13, aided by a 19- 
yard pass interference penalty, but Doug 
Loafman's 31 -yard field goal attempt went 
awry to snuff out the scoring threat. 

However, nine minutes later, after the two 
teams had exchanged punts, the Texans 
marched 62 yards in nine plays capped by a 15- 
yard touchdown sweep off left tackle by Mike 
Olle, his first marker of the night. Again the 
Demons aided the SFA cause with two major 
penalties, the latter coming on a late hit that 
gave the 'Jacks a first down on an unsuccessful 
third and two attempt from the 29-yard line. 

The Demons then marched straight down the 
field in 13 plays that covered 73 yards to up 
their lead to 27-14 when Philibert hit Liles for 

the pair's second TD effort, then hit Randy for 
the two-point conversion. 

SFA hurt their cause in that particular drive, 
as they committed two costly major penalties 
when the Demons had third and fourth down 
situations. Both penalties kept the NSU drive 

The teams again exchanged punts before the 
'Jacks went 49 yards for their final score, a one- 
yard run by Olle with three minutes left. The 
Choppers then tried an on-side kick which 
failed to go the required 10 yards, and the 
Demons had the ball and, consequently, the 
game. Philibert and Co. kept the ball on the 
ground and ran out the clock on a frustrated 
SFA defensive unit. 

SFA head coach Charles Simmons summed 
up his team's frustrations. "We had too many 
turnovers in the first half and not enough 
execution. We had expected a tough ball game, 
and that's exactly what we got."

Chief Caddo: only a legend? 

A.L. happy with opening win 

, Well, the Demons were able to hold on 
\ Chief Caddo for another year after 
iturday night's win over Stephen F. 
justin. Most of you are probably saying 
Who the heck is Chief Caddo"? 
lopefully, by the time you finish reading 
(enext few lines, you will know. But still 
iu may not care. 

Chief Caddo is a legendary 7-foot-6 
©den Indian who is the symbol of 
:tory in the football series betwenn NSU 
d SFA. The 260-pound statue, who is 
retly known for his intelligence in 
tball strategy, was born in 1961. He 
presents both schools since each is 
ated in a town with an Indian name 
id rich in historical backgrounds. 
It was agreed by both schools in '61 
t the loser of thai year's battle would 
it a tree from its own campus, and the 
Inner would have the responsibility of 
living a wooden Indian carved from the 
I- The Demons won that contest 35-19, 
: id so the tradition began. 

Harold Green of Logansport, a 
'■ nowned wood carver, accepted the 
allenge of working on the log, which 
is and still is his largest carving attempt, 
ter three months and an estimated 250 
m-hours, the legendary Chief Caddo 
« finished. 

Northwestern also captured the '62 
*ne against SFA at State Fair Stadium, 
the Chief made the trip back to the 
1 Student Union, where he spent the 
•of that year. 

The Chief is not as quiet as everyone 
ks. Although he is usually seen in his 
tely position in NSU's Prather 
'Hseum, he did find time to make some 
dlines for himself in 1977. The humble 
ian threatened to take over the public 
ess system at Lumberjack Stadium 
ng the football contest. He was 
Orted upset about the extremely 
npy ride from NSU to SFA, and also 
>ut the lack of "cute squaws" along 

nee the Chief was so upset, SFA 
1 officials were forced to arrange for 
I security, and also had to acquire 
services of a renowned tree surgeon in 
; the Chief was injured in a possible 
■ffle. It was also rumored that a band 
fowdy SFA students had planned to 
fase termites on the Chief, so an ex- 
Ninator also had to be called in just in 
"the Chief was attacked. 

recently talked to the highly 
ionated Indian, who has spent only 
* years of his life on the SFA campus 
r Lumberjack wins in 1963, 1974, and 
S. He seemed to still be upset about his 
tment there, and he clearly stated that 
was his home. 

was treated so terribly up there. 
y wouldn't even feed me good," the 
|f stated last week. "1 lost over 10 
nds up there in '75. I was given a 
[ket of water daily, and a teaspoon of 
Mlizer weekly, which isn't enough to 
anyone alive, what with all those 
'^id Lumberjacks running around up 
e continued. 

The Chief has an uncanny knowledge 
of football, but seems to have had a hard 
time communicating with the coaches 
since they have moved their offices from 
the Coliseum to the new Fieldhouse. The 
Big One also showed his displeasure 
concerning this issue. 

"I really am kind of upset about not 
being assigned an office in the 
Fieldhouse," Chief Caddo revealed. 
"The coaches used to depend on my 
extreme intelligence in tight situations 
they might be faced with," the Chief 
uttered modestly, "but I guess they feel 
my advice didn't accomplish much in the 
past. I'm also upset that I only get at- 
tention during this one week of the year, 
because everyone knows wooden Indians 
cannot live on varnish alone, or 
something like that, "he stated. 

It seems there are only a few people 
who have been around as long as the 
chief. One of those people is Gene 
Knecht, father of NSU fullback Brett 
Knecht, who has now stepped up into the 
position of Coordinator of Plant 
Maintenance at the University after 
manning the job of defense coordinator 
for many years. Knecht is one of the 
Chief's closest friends, and his reason for 
his fondness of the chief lies in the fact 
that "The Chief never interrupted me 
while I was talking," Knecht commented. 

The Chief also told me that there were 
several advantages of having to remain in 
the Coliseum. 

"Its relatively quiet during the day, and 
besides 1 get to see Pat Nolen and her 
Lady Demon basketball players," Chief 
Caddo replied with a sheepish grin. 
"Everyone knows Tynes Hildebrand 
never had a great pair of legs." 

Chief Caddo is relatively quiet during 
the year, until the time comes to play 
SFA. But you never know when you 
might hear from him in a strange way. He 
was reported jogging one evening along 
Chaplain's Lake, but nobody has seemed 
to believe that either.

Moments after the 
Demons won their season 
opener 27-21 from Stephen 
F. Austin, head coach A.L. 
Williams rejoiced: "I am 
very happy with the win, 
Stephen F. Austin is a much 
better team than the one we 
faced last season, especially 
their defensive unit. They 
really shut us off for most 
of the second half." 

The home victory was the 
Demons' fourth victory in a 
row against the Lum- 
berjacks but it proved to be 
an uphill battle. Penalties 
were marked off against the 
Demons 13 times for 173 
yards. Williams pinpointed 
a lack of intensity as the 
reason for the mental 
mishaps. He added, "We 
will have to cut down on 
our penalties as we move 
into later games this 

Two of Saturday's 
outstanding players also 
suggested that more ef- 
ficient play would be 
necessary in future games.

in the victory, caueht two

passes for 56 yards and two 
touchdowns. He was happy 
he made the big catches but 
quickly added that he still 
needs a lot of work on his 
pass patterns. Liles com- 
mented, "The offense was 
erratic at times." 

Senior David Wright, a 
starter at linebacker this 
season (he started at 
defensive end last season) 
was in on 16 tackles (10 
unassisted) to lead the 
Demon defensive unit. 
Wright also realized that 
more defensive work was 
needed before next week's 
clash with Texas Arlington. 
David stated, "It was fun 
playing the new position 
but 1 made a few 
mistakes." Somehow I 
think his "mistakes" were 
cancelled out by his two 
sacks of Lumberjack 
quarterback Herby Baker 
which totaled minus 21 
yards. His two big plays 
helped spark a 19-7 Demon 
halftime lead. Wright also 
broke up one pass and 
forced a fumble. 

Shreveport native Kenny 
Philibert guided NSU to its 
third straight season 
opening victory as , he 
connected on 8 of 16 passes 
for 101 yards and two 
touchdowns. The 5-9, 170 
pound senior declared 

"good team unity" helped 
secure the win despite the 
number of penalties. 

Northwestern had 
problems with its running 
game as they were held to 
125 yards on 41 carries. 
"All Louisiana" back Joe 
Delaney, the junior from 
Haughton was held to 35 
yards rushing on 16 carries. 
Delaney's sophomore 
season produced 945 yards 
on the ground including 299 
yards in a state record 
setting performance against 
Nicholls State. NSU's line 
will be tested this year as 
only one returning starter, 
Fred Galloway, is back. 

The Demons' kicking 
game must also improve. 
Two of three extra point 
attempts were missed 
Saturday night. The extra 
points will become more 
important in a close con- 
test. The punting game was 
very good, though, as Barry 
Rubin punted seven times 
for a 47.1 yard average. 
Rubins' longest effort of 75 
yards was good enough to 
set a new Demon record. 
The old record was 72 yards 
set by Theophile Scott 
verses Ouachita in 1941. 
Rubin should be ranked 
high nationally in the 
punting department this

Demons travel to face UTA 

by Buddy Wood 
Sauce Sports Editor 

Northwestern's Demons 
try to make it two in a row 
this Saturday night when 
they travel to Arlington, 
Tex. to battle with the 
Movin' Mavericks of the 
University of Texas- 
Arlington. The Demons are 
coming off a 27-21 win over 
traditional rival Stephen F. 
Austin, while UTA will be 
trying to rebound after a 
19-14 loss to North Texas 

The Mavericks, who had 
a 5-6 record last season, are 
led offensively by All- 
Southland Conference 
quarterback Roy Dewalt, 
who was named the SLC's 
Offensive Player of the 
Year last year. Dewalt 
rushed for over 800 yards 
and passed for over 850 
more to lead the Mavs in 
both categories. He also led 
the SLC in total offense 
with 155 yards per game. 

UTA head coach Bud 
Elliot returns his entire 
offensive backfield which 
ranked third nationally last 
season in rushing offense. 
Elliot's Wishbone quartet 


Jim Lee won first place in 
the first Current Sauce- 
Pizza Inn football contest 
last week. Lee, a senior 
from DeRidder, is the 
winner of a large pizza from 
Pizza Inn. Second place in 
the contest went to Keith 
Hinkley, a drafting major 
from New Orleans. Hinkley 
receives a meduim pizza for 
his second place entry. 

Winning a small pizza is 
third place finisher Michael 

powered for 306 yards a 
game on the ground to 
finish behind only 
Oklahoma and Nebraska. 

The Demons, who fell 30- 
7 at UTA's Craven Field 
last season, will have to 
stop the powerful ground 
game which rolled up 481 
yards in last year's game. 
The Mavs put two runners 
over the 100-yard barrier in 
that contest with four 
different rushers scoring 

NSU's defensive troops 
are led by senior linebacker 
David Wright, who was in 
on 16 tackles and also 
forced a fumble against 
SFA last weekend. Another 
senior linebacker, Ben 
Loper, and tackle Bob 
McGraw were both in on 10 
tackles to exemplify the 
swarming Demon defense. 

Offensively, the Demons 
are led by senior quar- 
terback Kenny Phiiibert, 
who was eight for 16 
passing for 101 yards 
against Stephen F. Austin, 
but more importantly had 2 
touchdown passes to Randy 
Liles and no interceptions. 

Phiiibert and his 
teammates will have to 

overcome a stubborn UTA 
defense led by linebackers 
Willie Thomas and Cliff 
Odum. Thomas has been an 
all-SLC performer three 
straight years, while Odum 
was the team's leading 
tackier a year ago. 

UTA's defense held the 
Demons below a hundred 
yards rushing and picked 
off six Demon aerials in last 
season's battle, which was 
tied 7-7 at halftime. 

Northwestern also needs 
a big effort from standout 
runner Joe Delaney, who 
had 99 yards on 21 carries 
against the Mavs a year 
ago, but managed only 35 
yards in 16 lugs against the 
Lumberjacks last weekend. 

The winner of this year's 
game will take a 2-1 lead in

3ntiniu»ould kick off last evening with a 
ent aioncert behind Iberville Dining Hall 
the it >e the NSU Entertainers. The

forma Also during last night's concert, 
e Millijie first clue was announced in the 
theen'Demons on the Warpath" 
ampus-wide treasure hunt. A small

a midget Northeast Indian." 
Today's clue reads, "Just like the 
Northeast Indians on Saturday 
light, the 'prize' tomahawk is only 
"■■■^ood on paper." 

McKellar emphasized that the 
omahawk is hidden so that no 
Jigging or destruction is needed to 
| find it. She said that more clues 
nould be placed on the SGA 
message board in front of the 

Student Union until the prize is 

The tomahawk should be turned 
in to the SGA office in the Union in 
order to claim the prize. 

The most viasble aspect of 
Homecoming week at NSU will be 
the banner display and parade. All 
campus dorms, groups, and 
organizations are expected to 
participate in the banner display. 
Dr. Rene Bienvenu, NSU's 
president, has emphatically insisted 
that all groups display some sort of 
banner this week. 

The banner parade is slated for 
Friday evening and will leave from 
Caldwell Hall at 6:30 for the 
riverbank in downtown Nat- 
chitoches, where a pep rally and 
street dance will follow. Papa Joe 
and Riverboar will be the featured 
band for the dance, which is co- 
sponsored by the Student Union 
Governing Board. 

The SUGB is also sponsoring a 
special movie presentation Wed- 
nesday and Thursday nights. The 
Academy Award winning "Close 
Encounters of the Third Kind" will 
be shown at 7:30 each evening, and 
door prizes will be awarded. 

Today is T-Shirt Day on campus. 
Any T-shirt with an NSU logo on it 
is acceptable dress for the day. At 
the Cane River Company this 
evening, anyone wearing an NSU 
shirt will be able to get half-price 

"We really want everyone to get 
involved and participate in some of 
the activities this week," McKellar 
said, "The Spirit Committee has 
really worked hard to make this a 
fun and exciting week that will build 
more school spirit." 

Dr. Bienvenu echoed those 
sentiments. "I want to see everyone 
involved in the Homecoming ac- 
tivities, especially in the banner 
display. No large sum of money 
need be involved, just a little bit of 
effort, to get the campus filled with 
signs and banners backing the 
Demons. This can be a great week if 
we can get everyone involved."

Hoi Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
President Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
frave a question, comment, com- 
plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(Room 225A in Kyse. • Hall) and 
we'll pass it alongto Dr, Bienvenu. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 
Recently, a Campus Security 
officer was reprimanded for issuing 
tickets to athletes. He was told that 
these people will not have to pay for 
[their violations. Would you please 
'check this out? 

A. I spoke to Chief Lee con- 
cerning this question, and he in- 
, formed me that no officer was 
[reprimanded for issuing tickets. 
[There is insufficient parking space 
[around Caspari Hall to handle the 
[occupants in that dormitory, and 
[these students were directed to park 
[in the vacinity of the old security 
[office or behind the Fine Arts 
[Center. Chief Lee is working 
towards correcting this problem, 
[and until new stickers are made 
[available to those students, they will 
lot be fined for parking in those 
I designated areas. 


Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

As a member of a Greek 
organization, I would like to point 
out the terrible parking problem 
that now exists on Greek Hill. At 
•he present, when it rains the road 
and parking spaces there get even 
Worse causing cars to get stuck or 
slide down the side of the Hill. 
There is definitely not enough 
parking for all of the sororities and 
fraternities with houses on Greek 
Hill. Is there any way ^University 
could provide more parking for 
Greek Hill or upgrade the present 

A. Mr. Lindsey has already 
reviewed the parking problem on 
Greek Hill, and plans to improve 
this situation will be implemented 
When road improvement funds 
become available to the University. 
The road needs to be completely 
changed and the multiple problems 
cannot be corrected simply by filling 
the potholes. We hope that the 
funds which have been approved for 
Northwestern for street work will be 
forthcoming very shortly. 

coeds were elected to her court. 
Included on this year's court are 
Diane Adams, Karen Carr, Kelly 
Crowell, Zina Curiey, Barbie 
Jenkins, Lauri Lindsey, Sadie Scott, 
and Terri Scott. 

The Current Sauce fee increase 
passed by a 391-326 margin. It 
passed by only 19 votes on the 
Natchitoches campus, but carried 
by an 85-39 count at the Shreveport- 
Warrington campus. Pending an 
okay by the State Board of Regents, 
the vote will raise Student 
Association fees an additional 
dollar beginning in 1980. 

In the Class Senators election, 
only one candidate, Kevin Bar- 
tholomew, a sophomore, won a 
position outright with 92 votes. 

There will be four candidates in a 
run-off election for the two 
freshman senator spots. Joe 
Stamey, Regina D. Young, Susan 
Sands and Keith Richard qualified 
for the run-off election. 

The freshmen votes tallied as 
follows: Steven Bradley-40, Scott 
Sledge-24, Joe Stamey-60, Melody 
Sprowl-41, Judi Abrusley-11, Dalia 
Hernandez-26, Helene Morgan-24,

Sands-46, Keith Richard-51, Patrick

Susanne Crawford-8. 

Wendy Wyble and Jewell Crow 
will be the only candidates in the 
sophomore run-off election since 

Bartholomew was elected on the 
first ballot. 

The sophomores votes tallied as 
follows: Wendy Wyble-66, Melissa 
D. Miller-36, Dianna Kemp-50, 
Kevin Barthlomew-92, Jewell Crow- 
65, and Sherrie Mattson-26. 

Juniors will vote on four can- 
didates in the, run-off election for 
the two Senatorial positions. The 
run-off candidates are: Mark 
Manuel, Tina Morell, Bobby 
Boullion and Angela Dogens. 

The junior votes tallied as 
follows: Richard Calvert-46, Dennis 
McClung-20, Sandra Carnahan-24, 
Mark Manuel-67, Tina Morell-92, 
Bobby Boullion-50, Angela Dogens- 
75, and Stan Scroggins-40.

Confidence key forTreen 

Decisions, decisions 
There were plenty of decisions to be made during last 
week's SGA elections. In addition to choosing nine coeds 
to serve on NSU's Homecoming court, students voted on 
the Current Sauce fee increase and narrowed down the 
field of hopefuls for Class Senator. Bobby Boullion 
probably had more on his mind than most students who 
voted last Wednesday, since he was a candidate for Junior 
Class Senator, (staff photo by Dennis Tyler). 

Enrollment rises by 162 

Northwestern president Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu has announced that 
the university's current fall semester enrollment is 6,056, an increase 
of 162 students over the fall of 1978. 

Bienvenu said this fall's enrollment, which includes 4,653 un- 
dergraduates and 1,241 graduate students, represents a 2.8 percent 
increase over last year's fall term registration figure of 5,894. 

A breakdown of the enrollment this fall shows, 1 ,030 students in the 
University College; 934 in the College of Business; 797 in Nursing; 768 
in Education; 657 in Science and Technology and 468 in Liberal Arts. 

In the Graduate School, 1,228 are enrolled in master's degree 
programs, 60 in specialist degree programs and 1 1 1 in doctoral degree 

Among the undergraduates, there are 2,273 freshmen, 848 
sophomores, 715 juniors and 818 seniors. Registration figures show 
that Northwestern has an enrollment of 3,530 women and 2,526 men. 

Bienvenu said, "The fall enrollment increase is extremely 
gratifying, and we are especially pleased with the growth in on- 
campus enrollment. Dormitory occupancy is up by three percent over 
last fall."

Sauce Editor 

Republican Congressman Dave 
Treen says he is confident that he 
will win this fall's gubernatorial 
election, and furthermore he has no 
fear of a possible challenge for the 
position in 1983 from present 
governor Edwin Edwards. 

Treen, speaking with the Sauce 
briefly following his speech last 
Wednesday afternoon in the lobby 
of the Student Union, expressed 
confidence in his current position 
atop almost every statewide poll. 

"Sure, I can win," Treen replied 
when asked to respond to a general 
feeling among many state political 
observers that he could not 
withstand the power of the 
Democratic Party in Louisiana. 

"They've got to relize that three 
of our eight U.S. Congressmen are 
Republicans," the Metarie native 
explained, "and apparently it 
should be four of eight." He 
referred to the vote-buying scandal 
in the District Four Congressional 
election between Democratic 
Congressman Claude "Buddy" 
Leach and Republican Jimmy 

"People are ready for a change," 
he said, "I am confident that I can 
win. The polls prove that." 

The gubernatorial candidate is 
optimistic about the chances for a 
two-party system in Louisiana, and 
says he ' has no fear of the 
Democratic Party or of Edwards. 

"The prospect of facing Edwards 
in 1983, if I win this election, 
doesn't bother me at all," Treen 
said. Edwards told the Sauce last 
week that he was planning to run 
again in '83. 

"If I do a good job-and I think I 
will— there should be no major 
obstacle to being re-elected in 
1983," the 51-year-old Treen said. 
"If he runs, I know I could beat 
him. Anyone who is governor for 
the next four years could." 

When reminded that Edwin 
Edwards is no run-of-the-mill 
Democrat, Treen still stuck by his 
guns. "The incumbent always has 
the advantage, and usually wins 
unless he has done a poor job in 
office. Then, he should lose." 

Treen spoke to a receptive crowd 
that filled the upstairs lobby of the 

Union. He told his audience he had 
two major goals to accomplish, 
once he is elected governor. 

"We in Louisiana must begin to 
fully realize our potential, both as a 
state and as individuals," Treen 
said. The other goal for Treen is 
"massive, substantial improvements 
in our state's educational system," 
through all academic levels and 
including vocational-techinical 
programs as well. 

Treen called for full funding of 
state universities and said the state 
superintendant of education should 
be appointed, not elected. 

The Republican candidate said he 
supports the "general philosophy" 

of the National Teachers 
Examination, but he thinks the 
standards may have been set too 
high, especially during the first year 
of testing in the state. 

He said the state "needs to have 
annualization of teacher pay." His 
proposal would allow for automatic 
yearly increases to offset inflation. 

Treen realizes even though he has 
a seven-point lead in the latest 
gubernatorial poll, he still faces a 
major obstacle. It is his candidacy 
that will almost certainly determine 
the future of Louisiana's two-party 
system. The last Republican

Paper lion 

Ben Bradlee, executive editor of The 
Washington Post, makes a point t reporters 
during a press conference prior to his speech 
last Wednesday here. Bradlee, the first of three 
fall speakers in the Distinguished Lecture 
Series, said during the press conference he 
does not believe Sen. Edward Kennedy will run 

for the Democratic nomination for President. 
He also caled for less court control over the 
rights given in the Constitution, specificliy 
freedom of the press. Bradlee is one of 
America's most reknowned print journalists.

Bradlee protests court control 

by David La Vere 
Sauce News Editor 

"The courts should not tell us 
what to print and what not to 
print," said the executive editor of 
the The Washington Post, Ben 
Bradlee, the first speaker in this 
semester's distinguished lecture 

Bradlee, who was named 
executive editor of The Post in 1968, 
was a key figure in the uncovering 
of the Pentagon Papers and the 
Watergate affair. 

Bradlee, the executive editor and 
two Post reporters, Carl Bernstein 
| and Bob Woodward, broke the 
Watergate affair, which eventually 
led to the resignation of Richard 

"Watergate has convinced paper 
owners that courae pays off," 
commented Bradlee. "We have 
taken on the powers that be, in- 
cluding the President of the United 

Many times when the government 
attempts to halt a story from being 
published on the grouds that it 
would be a breach of national 
security, that is not necessarily the 
case, said Bradlee. "It wasn't the 
power to endanger national 
security, but the power of the press 
lo embarrass the ad- 
ministration, "said Bradlee. 

One example cited by Bradlee was 
the bombing of North Viet Nam in 
the early '70's. According to 
Bradlee, the Nixon Administration 

claimed that The Post's story on the 
bombings was a gross violation of 
national security. "We can 
assume that the North Vietnamese 
knew they were being bombed, and 
we can assume that if they knew it, 
then the Russians and the Chinese 
knew about the bombings also. 
Those are the people that we are 
supposed to keep our national 
secrets from," said Bradlee. "It was 
the American people that didn't 
know the bombings were going on," 
pointed out Bradlee. 

"Truth emerges only in a free 
society. In a non-free society it will 
always be covered up," stated 
Bradlee. "One of the great purposes 
of a newspaper is to inform in- 
dividuals sufficiently and fairly to 
allow them to make their own 

Bradlee, who was a personal 
friend of the late president, John F. 
Kennedy, and who has written two 
books on the assassinated president, 
"That Special Grace" and 
"Conversations with Kennedy", 
stated that he is not convinced that 
Sen. Ted Kennedy will run for 
president in 1980. 

"I don't believe that story about 
his mother and wife giving him the 
okay," he said. "I'm not so sure he 
is a candidate. I wouldn't bet the 
rent on it." 

Commenting on the 
Massachusetts senator, Bradlee 
said, "Everyone flocks to Ted. Jack 
always said that Teddy was the 
natural politician of the family. I 
think Ted is a good senator and I 

like his staff. All the brothers had 
good people around them. Ted has 
an excellent staff, while Carter's 
staff is one of his downfalls." 

Speaking about President Carter, 
Bradlee stated that he was worried 
about the President's health 
following his recent collapse while 

"He looks like he lost a lot of 
weight. ..and is in terrible shape," 
said Bradlee commenting on pic- 
tures showing Carter collapsing 
during a road race. 

"The people need to know about 
their leader's health," said Bradlee. 

Bradlee stated that he does like 
the television show, "Lou Grant", 
in that it does portray newspaper 
life rather accurately. "One thing 
though. ..when the reporters call up 
someone, the phones are always 
answered. That really doesn't 
always happen very often." 

The Student Services Committee 
met last Tuesday and again com- 
piled a list of ideas, complaints and 
compliments to NSU officials in 
their search to improve the Nor- 
thwestern campus. 

A second outdoor concert was 
suggested by the committee. The 
NSU Band was the proposed en- 
tertainment and the recommended 
location was in front of the Student 

Complaints were made con- 
cerning the sanitary conditions in 
and around Iberville Dining Hall. 
Another suggestion was made 
concerning parking around the 
cafeteria and Sabine and Rapides 
halls. "When parallel parking 
around Iberville, Sabine and 
Rapides, traffic tickets should not 
be given to vehicles parked over the 
white line because when one car is 
illegally parked it causes all other 
cars to be illegally parked" ac- 
cording to the committee report. 

The Current Sauce again received 
phrase from the committee which 

described the student newspaper as 

"A lot of spirit and par- 
ticipation" was used to describe 
NSU's first pep rally two weeks ago.

The SUGB Luau also was 
complimented. It was a success 
along with the Entertainers.

On Sept. 11, Cecil Knotts, 
Director of Student Services, ap- 
peared before the committee to 
answer questions. The committee 
was very impressed with Knott's 
answer. He answered every written 
question the committee raised and 
has concerned himself with solving 
problems that may not even be in his 
area, according to James Mitchell, 
committee president.

Members of the campus branch 
of NAACP participated in a Voters 
Registration Drive last Monday. 

These members gathered in front 
of Iberville Dining Hall where a bus 
took them to the Natchitoches 

Most of these students simply 
changed their voting residence to 
Natchitoches while others registered 
for the first time. 

According to Leslie Thompson, 

president of the NAACP, the drive 
was a task effort involving the 
Natchitoches Voter's League and 
numerous other groups. 

Thompson staled that these new 
voters of Natchitoches may prove to 
be a forward of backward step for 
the town, but he hopes it'll be 

Several students said they wanted 
to register here in Natchitoches 
"Because we never go home to vote. 

Why register if you aren't exer- 
cising the right to vote?" 

There will be three candidates in 
the run-off election of senior class 
senators. They are Lynn Kees, Lisa 
Wright, and Pam Young. 

Senior class voting tallied as 

follows: Anthony Butler, 31; Kenny

Weights Here 

The newly completed field house has been a welcome 
addition to the athletic complex for many, but several 
students are still stewing over the 'closed-door' policy of 
the weight room. The $1.6 million facility was opened in 
June and houses the only fully outfitted weight room on 
the campus, (staff photo by Dennis Tyler). 

Weight policy consistent statewide 

The Sauce decided to dig a little 
deeper into the weight room con- 
troversy by contacting a few other 
schools in the state to see how they 
handle their weight rooms. We 
found most of the schools to be in 
agreement on their policies. 

We first called Louisiana Tech 
and talked to Keith Prince, sports 
information director. Prince said 
Tech had a weight room used 
strictly by athletes. "It's part of our 
athletic complex," Prince said. He 
added, "Of course, there's really no 
need to let the general student body 
in there because we have two other 
weight rooms in the gym, one for 

the students and one for our power 
lift team. Our athletes use the 
facilities in the field house. 
Sometimes though, to save a walk, 
our basketball players will work out 
in the gym." 

Northeast Louisiana's defensive 
coordinator and defensive line 
coach Harold Steelman told the 
Sauce that the student body at NLU 
has no access to the weight facilities 
in the athletic complex. Steelman 
said, "Our facilities in the athletic 
complex are used solely by our 
athletes, but we have two other 
weight rooms on campus. Our 
students have access to both of 

those areas." 

We found a different story at 
McNeese State in Lake Charles. 
Louis Bonnette, sports information 
director, said the Cowboy equip- 
ment is open to the entire student 
body. He said, "Sure, we let 
everyone use it. Of course, there are 
times we just can't let the students 
in. Otherwise, we let most everyone 
use the weights as long as they're 
from McNeese. Of course, they've 
got to take care of everything. Also, 
there's always a coach in there. We 
wouldn't let anyone in there without 

Al Suffrin, Nicholls State's SID, 

said students were definitely not 
allowed in the athletic complex 
training room. "We've got two 
other weight rooms, one in the 
men's gym and one in the women's 
gym, for the students to use," 
according the Suffrin. "We've 
never had any problems with the set- 
up here." 

Sports information director 
George Foster of the University of 
Southwestern Louisiana said, "Yes, 
we have a weight-training facility 
for our athletes but I don't believe 
the student body has access to it. 
I'm not really sure, but I don't think 
they do."

Mary Beth Walls, Editor 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Thank you 

Wheeeewwwww! It was mighty 
close but we made it. I'm talking 
aboui the elections in which, you, 
the student body here at NSU, voted 
to give us, the Current Sauce, a $1 
fee increase. 

We:re happier than a clam that 
you voted YES on the fee increase 
and all of us on the Sauce staff took 
it as a vote of confidence. 

As you know, the Sauce has been 
experimenting with new ideas this 
semester, and we believe that by 
passing the increase, that the Sauce 
has improved and that you kind of 
like what we've been doing with the 

In fact, we at the Sauce, take this 
positive vote as a challenge, and 
promise to attempt to give you the 
quality newspaper that you want, 
but not only want, but demand. 

Of course, we can't help getting a 
few people mad at us, but most of 
feel that a little controversy is a 
good thing. And isn't raising a 
[controversial issue part of the job of 
■a newspaper. 

Besides our editorials, we are 
attempting to bring you more 
straight news. Interesting things 
happen here on campus and it is our 
goal to bring more of these events to 

i You students are demanding 
readers, and no one knows this 

better than us. The election results 
made that clear to us. The Sauce fee 
increase just barely passed - 19 
votes on this campus. 

We can understand how you can 
be upset by the quality of the paper 
in the past. We didn't like it either. 
But there is a whole new crew with 
us this time and I can tell you that 
things are going to change. Thats 
not a promise but a guarantee. 

The affirmative vote that you 
gave tells us that you want us 
around, but the close margin of 
victory also tells us that you are 

We can change the paper. We will 
change the paper. But we need your 
help. We need your feedback. Tell 
us what you do like or don't like 
about the paper. Whether it be 
about a certain article, a column, or 
just the format. We can't give you 
the paper you want unless you tell us 
what you want. 

So drop us a line, give us a call. If 
you know someone that is on the 
staff, stop them and tell them what 
you like or dislike. It's your paper. 
We work for you. 

Again, thank you for the vote to 
increase the Sauce fee. We feel that 
you have put your trust in us, and I 
promise that we won't let you 

Banner week 

Here comes another speech on 
''student apathy. 

I thought I might tell you right up 
front so if you wanted to quickly 
begin reading something else, you 
could. But if you keep reading, I 
think you'll find this to be a little 

You see, this speech is an op- 
timistic one, because for the first 
time in recent memory, Nor- 
thwestern seems to be looking 
forward with a measure of ex- 
citement and anticipation. And it is 
not to scold anyone, because I don't 
think there is any need for that. We 
have had enough of that in the past. 

To use the words of the late Rev. 
Martin Luther King, I have a 
dream. One day, one day not so far 
in the future, I can see the entire 
Northwestern community coming 
together, united, working towards a 
common goal — making NSU the 
best university in the area, through a 
constant movement toward ex- 
cellence in every aspect. 

We can take the first step in that 
direction this week. There are many 
opportunities to get involved in 
some sort of 

activity this week, from hunting 
for a treasure to display of a banner. 
Each of these activities will, in their 
own way, help to build school spirit. 
They all involve a spirit of 
cooperation if they are to be ac- 
complished — a spirit that will build 
pride and unity. 

It won't take much effort to get 
involved. Just let yourself do a little 
bit extra, like taking the time to put 
on a shirt or a hat with the NSU 
logo on it today. 

It would be great to see a campus 
full of all sorts of banners and signs 
supporting and backing the 
Demons in their game this weekend. 
Dr. Bienvenu has insisted every 
campus group and organization, 
including dorms, particpate in the 
banner display this week. Even the 
usually staid faculty is being 
strongly encouraged to show a bit of 
school spirit and put up a sign or 
something in their windows or on 
their doors expressing their feelings 

about Northeast. 

Now, it's time for the students to 
do their part. 

This can be, pardon the pun, a 
banner week for NSU. If everyone 
will get involved and display a 
banner or something in their dorm 
or on their class building or 
wherevever, and then march in the 
parade and holler at the pep rally on 
the riverbank Friday night, we can 
begin to trun this campus into a 
place with some positive school 

Now, some of you may think 
that's a bit corny. Butt I used to, 
too. But then, during my senior year 
in high school, I experienced what it 
is like to attend a school where there 
is unity and togetherness. 

Until then, I had kind of a 
skeptical outlook on spirit. But as I 
watched a small high school 
transformed into a place where 
students looked forward to being, as 
this school forgot its rocky past and 
built a new foundation of unity and 

It can happen here, too. Sure, 
that was a small high school, but it 
was still a big group of people 
working with each other toward a 
common goal— and that is precisely 
what can have here at NSU. People 
are always saying it can't be done 
here, but if those people would shut 
their mouths long enough to open 
their eyes and look around, they 
would find there are plenty of 
people here willing to work in the 
right direction, given the proper 

No, we here at NSU are not that 
far away. We can come together and 
work for a common goal... at least, I 
believe we can. What happens this 
week will lay the foundation of a 
new NSU. We can make it what we 
want it to be, if we care enough to 
get involved. 

Take the time. Do the work. Be 
proud of who you are, where you 
are, and what you do. It will rub 
off, and soon we will have a 
school — a university— that we can 
all proud of, and an important part

Students want big entertainment 

By Man Beth Walls 
Sauce Opinion Editor 

The SauceSurvey question this 
week was "Would you mind paying 
approximately $2 at the door in 
addition to your I.D. for a concert if 
there was a really big-name band 
playing; and who would you like to 
see play at NSU&" 

This question was selected 
because the desire to have more 
concerts with bigger name per- 
formers has been with NSU students 
for many years. True, there have 
been some excellent shows put on by 
smaller groups, but the majority of 
the people would like to hear and 
see someone with a very large name 
and following. 

Famous performers such as John 
Denver, the Carpenters, the Charlie 
Daniels Band, and Kenny Rogers 
have given concerts at Northwestern 
when they were well known, and 
drew good-size groups. They came, 
however, before they were in as 
great of a demand and high price 
bracket as they are today. The 
limited equipment available, space, 
and funds are just a few reasons 
why NSU has not drawn many 
nationally known acts in recent 

The idea has been broached that 
to be able to draw well-known 
performers, students could pay a 
nominal fee, something in the range 
of two dollars, in addition to their 
I.D., to gain admission to the 
concert. Non-students would still 
pay for a regular-price ticket. This, 
it was thought, would bring in the 
extra monies to put on a large show. 

When we speak of having big- 
name attractions, we must be 
reasonable as to what to expect. 
Northwestern could not put on 
concerts of the type that LSU does 
(for example, Earth, Wind, and 
Fire) for many reasons, not the least 
of which would be the fact that 

Radical Rag 

schools such as LSU team up with 
the promoters of such affairs in 
sharing the costs. The Student 
Union Governing Board of NSU, on 
the other hand, handles all aspects 
of concerts, from booking on down. 

Ron Thomas, president of the 
SUGB, had this statement to make 
when asked about the possibility of 
students paying in addition to their 
I.D. - "The question of charging 
students at the door for an SUGB 
event has been raised many tims, 
especially when dealing with 

"Charging students would bring 
in additional money but would not 
necessarily result in 'bigger' or even 
more concert attractions. Other 
problems such as lack of staging, 
lack of sufficient electrical 
resources, the location of Nat- 
chitoches and the size o the hall limit 
us in the size act we can ac- 
comodate. These problems cannot 
be overcome by the additional 
money that would be provided by 
charging students at the door. 

"Unless we could promise a 
seriously upgraded concert fare I 
would be against a move in this 

Well, that seems like a resonable 
argument, and after some thought, 
perhaps one can sympathize with 
the SUGB's situation. However, the 
students questioned were totally in 
favor of paying an extra $2 if it 
would mean having bigger names 
for concerts. 

One opinionated student feels 
that "It is unfortunate to waste the. 
time of both the student body and 
the University by creating a big 
name entertainment committee and 
then limit it to small time bands. 
Some may say that bands in the past 
were not small time, but in today's 

standards, who wants to attend 
cheap disco imitations or 'has-been' 
recording artists? So what if 
students were assesed a few dollars 
per concert. At least it would be 
worth attending. If only 4000 
students attended at $5 a head, 
creating a $20,000 purchasing price, 
I think it would draw a larger at- 
traction than Confunction did last 

Dale Nielson, a junior from New- 
Orleans who would like to see Van 
Halen and Kansas play at NSU, 
said, "I wouldn't mind, not at all. 
Also, if they'd go back and look at 
their sales records, bands with a 
country trend seem to sell more." 
Perhaps that could be attributed to 
the fact that Natchitoches is 
surrounded by predominantly rural 
communities, where country music 
is many times the preferred type. 

Some students such as Lona 
Flood of Bossier said that she would 
definitely attend an NSU concert 
(she hasn't been to one yet) if there 
was a big attraction. Also, she 
would pay a little bit more if that 
was what was needed to get that 
attraction here. 

In the same vein, Nancy Schwer, 
a 3-1 from New Orleans, stated, 
"Yeah, sure I'd pay - if we'd get big 
name entertainment. We need more 
concerts to draw student interest 
and participation." Two of the 
bands Nancy names as wanting to 
see were Kansas and Heart . 

One student who had an excellent 
point in wanting to have larger 
concerts at Northwestern was Mark 
Boydston of Natchitoches, "I'd pay 
$5 if they'd get someone good, to 
save you from driving to Shreveport 
or Alexandria. Just driving up there 
costs you more. I'd like to see 
Jimmy Buffet here, maybe in an 


outdoor concert. And if dreamj. 
helps any, Boston or Styx would | 

Maria Ellis-Holder felt that 
students would not be 
anything by paying a couple doll* 
at the door, especially if the bal 
was very good. When asked who J 
would like to see perform, her \Z 
quick answer was, "Teddy pj 
dergrass. The man is good, andM 
sound equipment probabl 
wouldn't create too much of [ 

"People always complain aboy 
not getting big names. Maybe! 
we'd pay extra, we could J 
someone really good. I'd like to $1 
the Statler Brothers and Journ* 
play at NSU," was how Cat* 
Lotkowski of Bossier felt about* 
question askd. 

Joe Mastracchio of New Orleai 
had this to say - "I would pay a f ' 
extra bucks to see someone oii 
standing perform. Also, with 
famous name group, a lot of out-oji 
town people would attend." 

Kenny Clark, a senior froi 
Elizabeth, related his thoughts. "|l 
pay it. The extra money would on) 
be paying if it was a good bant 
though, Also, I think we shoul 
have more concerts." Atlanj 
Rhythm Section, Dr. Hook, an 
Kenny Nolan were the performet 
that Kenny thought would i 
feasible for a Northwestern concert 

Some other groups which receivi 
a positive vote for concerts we} 
Gene Cotton, Freedom, Georj 
Benson, Peaches and Herb, Lino 
Ronstadt, the Little River Bant 
and the Oak Ridge Boys. 

So it seems that student wou 
pay a couple extra dollars to see bij 
name entertainment come to NSI 
Who knows, maybe one di 
(preferably in the near future) tn 
will be possible. 

Don 't waste your right to vote 

Even if you haven't been thinking 
about it, I'm sure everybody is 
aware that the state-wide elections 
are slowly, but definitely creeping 
up on us, like cancer on John 

Eight govd men are running. 
(This year Louisiana has even put 
out a candidate that is running on 
the Socialist ticket.) And when we 
go into the voting booths, we shall 
once again do like we did on that 
biology test last week and play 

Yep, and if the SauceSurvey a few 
weeks ago has any validity, then a 
lot more will not even do that. And 
to think, they trusted 18 year olds 
with the right to vote. 

NSU students have a rather 
consistent record for attending 
elections. They always don't show 
up to vote in large numbers. Which 
means in political language, that 
since not enough people show up to 
vote, then things can't be to bad, so 
lets not worry about doing anything 
for them, but give the good stuff, to 
those that are making political 
waves by voting. (So says the elected 

So when election day does come 
up, a whole bunch of NSU students 

are going to go into the booths (I 
mean those that will vote) and just 
begin pulling levers. Not thinking 
about who or what they are voting 
for, not really caring. 

Come on people, lets be in- 
telligent voters. Don't go out and 
vote for somebody because he looks 
good, or sounds good, or has a neat 
sounding name. Of all things, these 
points are the worst references to go 
on. And be sure, don't vote for 
somebody because your mom or 
dad likes them and tells you to vote 
for them. In most respects, Mom 
and Dad are known to be a little on 
the conservative side and can steer 
you away from some very sensible 
candidates. And on the other hand, 
don't vote the way your best friend 
tells you just because he is your best 
friend. Best friends are sometimes 
rather vehemently liberal, and can 
turn you away from some other 
sensible candidates. 

Think about who you are going to 
vote for. Vote for the man who wll 
do YOU the most good. 

If you are pro-Right- to work and 
really don't like labor unions. Then 
you probably wouldn't want to vote 
for Louis Lambert. If you really 
don't like big business too much, 

then you probably wouldn't want to 
vote for Dave Treen. 

All of these men have different 
platforms and all have different 
solutions to many of the same 
problems. These solutions they 
propose affect you, the citizen of 
Louisiana. And if you are college 
age, and considering out lengthy 
lifespan, you are going to lie with 
these earth-shaking solutiozs for a 
longer period of time. 

Look and see where the can- 
didates stand on certain issues. 
Check out how they have voted on 
other issues. Do some real hard 
research, like read the back of their 
political brochure. 

Don't vote for a man because he 

shook your hand once or gave you 

If the above appeal doesn't si 
you, then lets put it like this - Mall 
your vote count for something 
Make it worth more than the fiM 
dollars it would be in Leesville. J 
candidate wants to be a pubH 
servant, then make him serve. H 
wants to spend money to get elected 
then make him get your vote H 
spending that money and time ail 
work and effort. Don't come cheap 
Vote for who will give you the bej 
deal. Vote for who is going to d 
YOU the most good. 

Above all, DON'T VOTE FOR 
NAME, and be sure as hell

As a former Northwestern student, I read with in- 
:erest your article concerning the opinion poll on 
abortion. It is, as you stated, a touchy issue, but what 
amazes me is not that many people feel strongly about 
it, but that so many seem to be basically undecided. The 
root of the issue is the perfectly clear-cut question - is 
abortion, oris it not, the taking of a defenseless human 
life - that is, murder? I believe, unequivocally, that it is, 
and if the word "murder" is substituted for "abortion" 
in such contexts as "Abortion (murder) is okay if . . ." 
or "I would coutenance abortion (murder) only in a 
case of . . .", the absurdity of such hedging becomes 
quite clear. To these who manage to convince them- 
selves that a life within the womb, in whatever stage of 
example, that from the moment of concep- tion, a 
human embryo is, genetically speaking, not merely an 
absolutely unique individual? The current fascination 
with the idea of "cloning" must have made people 
increasingly aware that every cell of the body contains a 
complete genetic "blueprint" for the whole person. 

There has been much controversy lately about the 
medical and legal definitions of life and death in cases 
relating to transplants, the terminally ill, and so forth. 
In almost all cases, the criterion for determining life (or 
death) has been the activity (or lack of activity) of the 
brain. Any physician who "pulled the plug" on an 
accident victim whose brain was still active would be 
immediately condemned as a medical murderer. The 
fact that a person's body processes require the tem- 
porary (or even permanent) aid of a life support system 
does not justify killing him or her by the removal of that 
support if his or her brain is functional. I wonder how 
many abortion advocates are aware that the brain waves 
of a human fetus can be recorded after little more than a 
month of life in the womb? Thus, the very criterion used 
to protect life in a potential organ donor is 
systematically denied to the unborn child, who is a 
healthy individual only temporarily dependent of the 
"life support system" of its mother until it is capable of 
functioning on its own. It seems to me that the ethical 
considerations in these two situations are essentially the 

same. _. .

by Ron Thomas 

Union Board Prssident 

One of the biggest questions in todays spiraling rates 
is how to get your moneys worth. 

This question not only relates to clothes, food and the 
like but also Student Activities fees. How can you get 
the most out of the $ 10 you pay at registration? 

Let's look at what the SUGB does with that $10 per 
student. We program about 13 movies per semester. If 
you went to a commercial theater to see these it would 
probably cost you $2.50 a shot or $32.50 if you made all 
13. We don't have popcorn and cokes but... 

Other events that occur less frequently are concerts ( 
one or two a semester at a value of $6 each); dances 
(usually three per semester, $2 a head club rate); and a 
beauty pageant in the fall (try getting into one for less 
than $5) 

Plus those events that are difficult to put a dollar sign 
on such as Hawaiian, luaus, talent shows, hayrides, 
plays, art exhibits, outdoor concerts, and an occasional 
ice cream party. 

Getting back to our figures, every full time student 
has an opportunity to attend over $50 worth of events 
(not including those events mentioned above). 

Of course it is unrealistic to expect anyone to attend 
every SUGB event. But attend as many as you can, have 
a good time, and get as much for your money as you 
can. We think it's worth it. 

This weeks SUGB calendar looks like this: Sept. 26 
and 27 "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" in the 
Keyser Aud. at 7:30 p.m.; Sept. 28 Homecoming dance 
featuring Papa Joe and Riverboat Downtown River- 
front, from 7-1 1 p.m.

Ranger Club 

The ROTC Ranger Club 
or the "SWAMP 
DEMONS" conducted a 
tactical excercise on the 
night of Sept, 14. The 
excercise c consisted of the 
club starting about a ; mile 
back from the east bank of 
the Cane River and making 

a reconaissance of- an 
imagined enemy command 
post on the west bank. 

The major obstacle was 
the Cane River. It 
presented no great problem. 
The club was broken down 
into three elements. One 
element crossed the river to 
recon the wanned command 
post, while the oghter two 
elements supplied support. 
The excercise went 
smoothly, with the Swamp 
Demons accomplishing 
their mission without being

Rubin rambles 

Northwestern senior tight end Barry Rubin 
(88) looks for running room Saturday night 
after gathering in a pass from Demon quar- 
terback Kenny Philibert in NSU's 37-14 loss to 
the Mavericks. UTA's cornerback Greg 
Wright (32) moves in to help out on the stop.

by Buddy W ood 
Sauce Sports Editor 

The University of Texas at Arlington has one 
of the most powerful rushing attacks of any 
team in the entire nation. Everyone on the 
Demon squad was aware of the fact, but 
nobody seemed to be able to do anything about 
it as the speedy Mavericks of UTA dashed 
through an outmanned NSU defense for 403 
yards to take a 37-14 win in the Demons first 
road game of the season. 

Brilliant senior quarterback Roy Dewalt ran 
the Mav's Wishbone option offense to almost 
near perfection while piling up a team-leading 
104 yards on only 10 carries. Dewalt, the 
Southland Conference total offense leader a 
year ago, certanly showed he will be the prime 
contender for the honor again as he personally 
accounted for 159 of the Mavs 458 markers in 
total offense. 

The Demons were in trouble fr m the start as 
the Texans took the opening kickoff and 
marched 92 yards in only 10 plays to take a 7-0 
lead with 927 left in the first stanza. Dewalt 
capped the long drive with a six-yard run 
atound right end for the score, with 69 of the 
yards in the drive coming on the ground. 

Then, after UTA kicked off, NSU quar- 
terback Kenny Philibert was intercepted on the 
Demons first offensive play. The Demon 
defense held, however, but UTA's punt was 
fumbled by NSU returner Mark Schroeder and 
the "Wishbone Kids" were back in business 
again at the Demon 11 -yard line. Three plays 
later, Tony Felder punched over from the five- 
yard line for the Mavs second TD, giving them 
a quick 14-0 lead. In fact, UTA scored two 
touchdowns in eight minutes while the Demons 
were able to get only one play off in that span. 

The only major flaw in the Maverick offense 
was that they fumbled the ball seven times with 
NSU recovering three of the bobbles, but the 
Demons weren't able to cash in on any of the 
miscues until it was too late. The only Demon 
score that came as a result of a turnover was 
their last one, when freshman signal-caller 

Bobby Hebert tossed a 22-yard pass to Joe 
Delaney to give the Demons their second score 
with seven minutes left in the contest. 

The Demons stayed close throughout most of 
the first half. Schroeder got the Demons on the 
board with a three-yard TD sweep that capped 
a short 33-yard drive that was set up by a bad 
punt by UTA's Odes Mitchell. Schroeder's run 
came in the first minute of the second quarter, 
but the Demon offense went sour until the final 
three minutes of the half. 

The Mavericks took a 20-7 lead with just 
under three minutes to go in the half when they 
went 88 yards on 12 plays for a score. Dewalt 
passed 19 yards to Brent Doyle for the 
touchdown and the conversion failed. The play 
was seemingly broken up be Demon safety 
Darrell Toussaint, who had tipped the ball, but 
Doyle came up with a spectacular catch for the 
score, and his effort may have made a big 
difference in the game because the play came on 
third down and, in turn, dealt a big 
psychological blow to the Demons. 

The biggest blow, however, was dealt when 
the Demons went 61 yards to he UTA 14 yard- 
line and failed to score in the final first half 
drive. The Demons had a fourth down when 
Philibert rolled out to his left to pass, tried to 
hit tight end Barry Rubin in a crowd of 
defenders, and ultimately threw a big in- 
terception. Schroeder had snuck down the right 
side of the field all alone, but went unnoticed as 
Philibert scrambled away from the Mav 
defense. Had the Demons scored on that 
particular play, it may have been a whole 
different story. 

Demon head coach A.L. Williams had much 
praise for the UTA team, but was disappointed 
in the way his team performed. 

"We just did not execute well at all," 
Williams commented. "We didn't take ad- 
vantage of offensive opportunities in the first 
half, we made too many defensive mistakes and 
we just broke down in the second half." 

The Demons were never really in the game in 
the second half as UTA ran off 17 unanswered 
points before the Demons final score. The 
Mavs used a fine 63-yard run by Keith Hatfield 

to highlight a 73-yard drive in only five plays to 
take a 27-7 lead when Philip Jessie went over 
from one yard out, and NSU simply couldn't 

UTA closed out its scoring with a 39 yard 
field goal by Brian Happel and a 10-yard run up 
the middle by Mike Piwonka that climaxed a 
58-yard drive. The final Mav score came with 
almost 13 minutes left in the game, but reserves 
from both teams finished out the contest. 

NSU's brightest spot was probably the play 
of its young players, who came into the game in 
a helpless situation and performed well. 

UTA, playing its first home game of the 
young season, upped their record to 2-1, while 
the Demons record dropped to 1-1 going into

Wood Working 

with Buddy Wood 

Wright can't go wrong 

When people start referring to athletes 

] "natural athletes" they usually throw 
le term around too lnnselv. A true 

e term around too loosely. A true 
natural athlete" is genuinely hard to 
»d, but if you pay special attention to 
middle linebacker position on the 
U defensive squad, you can probaly 
the best example of this anywhere 

The person I'm referring to is David 
right, truly one of the most gifted 
ayers to ever wear the Demon colors, 
fight is now in his fourth position for 
5 Demons, serving as a quarterback his 
eshmen season, at fullback his 
Phomore season, defensive end last 
ar, and now is the Demon defensive 
J der at the middle linebacker spot. 
Wright came to NSU after a brillant 
feer St. Mary's here in Natchitoches 
tare he was a two-time All-State choice 
'th offensively and defensively. He led 
e Tigers to the state semifinals as a 
"ior at quarterback the position he 
8an at NSU. His playing time was very 
lited during his freshmen year when he 
s sed for only 58 yards and one score, 
't after that initial campaign, his im- 
ftance to the Demon team has certainly 

ght was moved to fullback his 
Phomore year, rushing for 190 yards 
d three TD's and also catching eight 
ses for 72 yards. And it was then that 
pie started buzzing over the promise 
>t David showed. 

Another feature that Wright possesses 
dedication. NSU head coach A.L. 
Pliams will be the first to point that out. 
David had some are problems from 
Owing the javelin in high school," 
'lliams said, "so we asked him if he 
[Med to move to fullack. He's the type 
Player who will move anywhere to help 
|team as a whole." 

&avid played throughout the 1978 
'Son as a starting defensive end, where 
had a total of 64 tackles to rank sixth 
the squad and third among all 
Sr nen. An amazing figure is that 
''ght was in on a total of 27 tackles, 17 

I himself and 10 assists, during the 
tions win over SFA to open the season. 

Flier reports had him with a total of 16 
(ties 10 unassisted and 6 assists, but a 
mr of the game films provided a better 
*s for awarding tackles, so Wright's 
' e nsive performance is even more 

It seems that Wright now has found his 
natural position. The 5-11, 200-pound 
senior is so quick off the snap that he 
hardly ever gets beat on a play. 

NSU's defensive ends and linebackers 
coach Ronnie Alexander summed up 
Wright's strength at linebacker this way. 
He comminted, "David's strong point is 
that he just doesn't like to get beat. He 
reads offenses well and he has ability to 
adjust to the offense, but his desire is his 
biggest attribute. 

Coach Williams however feels that 
David's BEST position is probably strong 
safety, where he will almost undoubtedly 
play in the pros if given the chance. 
Williams also pointed out that it was hard 
shifting Wright from offense to defense, 
because of his super athletic ability. But 
he felt that defense would be his best bet. 

Wright made the change to linebacker 
without any complaints. He worked hard 
during the spring to learn the "tricks" of 
the position and his diligence has 
definitely shown. Wright had this idea 
about playing linebacker for the first 

"The only difference about playing 
linebacker is that you take a few more 
licks," he joked, "but you get to move 
around more and hit a few more people, 

One of the main reasons Coach 
Williams moved David to defense was 
because he had what williams calls 
"defensive temperament". Williams 
explained, "David likes contact, and he 
has a tremendous nose for the football 
ans can tell where a play is going 

In addition to the many tackles Wright 
accumulated in his first game at 
linebacker he also made two quarterback 
sacks and forced a fumble. So it would be 
a gross understatement to say that his 
performance was merely a success. It was 
more like a brilliant performance. But, 
like any good athlete who is a fine person, 
David saw room for improvement. 

"I missed some stops that I shoud have 
made, he said, "but our defense as a 
whole did a really good job (against SFA) 

Should Wright keep up at his present 
pace, getting better with every game, and 
should he avoid serious injury, his 
graduation should not mean the end of his 
career. Given the chance, he just may be 
a part of the NFL come this time next 

NSU head football coach 
A.L. Williams had nothing 
but good things to say 
about Texas-Arlington 
Sunday after his Demons 
had absorbed a 37-14 defeat 
at the hands of the 
powerful Mavericks 
Saturday night. 

"They're easily the most 
physical club we'll play all 
year," Williams said after 
UTA had rolled up over 400 
yards on the ground in 
literally running away with 
the win. "They just 
whipped us up front all 
night, and that made their 
running game go and kept 
ours from getting started." 

The Demons, who fell to 
1-1 on the year, were 
limited to only 31 yards 
rushing on the night by the 
Maverick defense, even 
though passing for 200 
yards in the contest, UTA 
almost doubled NSU, 458 
to 23 1 , in total offense. 

Still, the contest could 
have been much closer than 
it actually was. 

"We gave them two 
scores with mistakes," 
Williams said. "We fumble 
a punt the first time we get 
the ball and then we throw 
an interception and we're 
behind 14-0 before we even 
start. Then, we miss a 
touchdown catch in the end 
zone and give them a 
touchdown pass on their 
end when we had it well 

That made it 20-7 at 
halftime. "If not for our 
own mistakes, we could 
very easily have gone in at 
halftime with a 14-7 lead, or 
at the worst with a 14-14 tie. 

It's a whole new game 
when you have to make up 
two touchdowns in the 
second half against a good 

The Mavericks marched 
92 yards with the opening 
kickoff for their first score, 
with quarterback Roy 
Dewalt scoring it himself 
from six yards out. Then, 
on NSU's first play, Demon 
quarterback Kenny 
Philibert has a pass picked 
off in NSU territory, and 
when the Mav offense 
doesn't move NSU's Mark 
Schroeder fumbles the UTA 
punt and puts the 
Mavericks in business from 
the Demon 11. Three plays 
later, Tony Felder makes it 
14-0 from five yards out. 

"They jammed it down 
our throats on that first 
drive," Williams said, "but 
on every other drive they 
had we either made a 
mistake in giving them the 

ball in good position, or 
they sprung a long play 
because of a lapse by our 

Dewalt accounted for 
two scores on the night, 
with the other coming on a 
19-yard pass to Brent Doyle 

just before halftime, which 
was caught between two 
defenders. UTA then put it 
away with a Phillip Jessie 
touchdown run and a Brian 
Happel field goal in the 
third period. 
"We have got to get our 

ground game moving," 
Williams said of his squad, 
which is currently averaging 
78.0 yards per game 
rushing. "We have gotten 
very poor blocking up front 
both of the past two weeks, 
and when we've had holes 

we haven't taken advantage 
of them." 

Delaney had 22 yards to 
lead the Demons on the 
ground, while Philibert 
passed for 113 yards on 10 
of 27 completions.

Revenge stuck in 
Demons 9 minds 

by Don Hudson 
Saiice Staff Writer 

The battle of the unlikely 
unbeatens kicked off Sept. 
30, 1978 at Northeast's 
Indian stadium. The 
Northwestern State 
University Demons had not 
won thier first four football 
games since 1967, when the 
Demons won five in a row 
and continued a win streak 
of 15 straight games. NLU 
had not won its first three 
games since way back in 
1958, when the Indians won 
their first six games of the 
season before falling to a 6- 
3 record. So the stage was 
set. The outcome was NLU 
46, NSU-0. 

That was one year ago 
when the Indians piled up 
592 total offensive yards, 
302 rushing and 290 
passing, in a rout of the 

The Demons, 1-1, will 
play host to the Indians, 1- 
2, Saturday at 7:30 at Harry 
"Rags" Turpin Stadium in 
their thirty-first annual 
Homecoming game, and 
the Demons are looking for 
a different outcome. 

NLU dropped their 
season opener to South- 
western, 17-13, but 
bounced back the following 
week to defeat Arkansas 
State, 18-17, with 11 
seconds left in the game on 
a Bubba Toups field goal. 
The Indians fell to McNeese 
last week, 12-10. 

Don Stump converted 
three field goals for Mc- 
Neese to lead the Cowboys 
past the Indians in a 
defensive struggle last 

Junior tailback Nathan 
Johnson (5'9" 169) leads 
NLU on offense. Johnson 
rushed for 731 yards and six 
touchdowns last season, 
including 12 rushes for 105 
yards against NSU. 

Senior Bud Cespiva (6'1" 
193) will be NLU's 
probable signal caller. 
Cespiva came off the bench 
last season against the 
Demons and completed 8 of 
9 passes for 108 yards. 

All-South Independent 
second team selection 
Harold Thompson (5' 10" 
188) spears NLU's defense. 
Thompson, a senior, had 
120 tackles and five in- 
1 terceptions last season. 

NSU, which holds a 19-8 
lead in the series with the 
Indians dating back to 
1958, won their season 
opener against Stephen F. 
Austin 27-21, but fell at the 
hands of the University of 
Texas-Arlington last week, 

The Demons are looking 
for a good performance 
from first team Alll- 
Louisiana tailback Joe 
Delaney. Delaney, a 945 
yard rusher last season, has 
been held to 57 yards on 24 
carries in his first two 

Delaney only picked up 
22 yards last week against 
UTA but showed a flash of 
last season's efforts on a 22 
touchdown pass reception 
from quarterback Bobby 

The Mavericks of UTA 
rolled up 458 total offensive 
yards on the Demon 
defense with most of the 
damage coming from an 
awesome wishbone ground 

The Demons had four 
passes picked off last week, 
two being thrown by 
starting quarterback Kenny 
Philibert. Philibert has 
completed 18 of 43 at- 
tempts, thrown two in- 
terceptions, and two 
touchdown passes for 214 
yards in his first two starts. 

Demon linebacker David 
Wright was in on 27 tackles 
against SFA, 17 solos and 
10 assists, sacked SFA's 
quarterback twice for a 
total of 19 yards, and 
caused one fumble, but had 
only one solo tackle and 
four assists at UTA last 

The Demons have a 
homecoming record of 16- 
14 dating back to 1948, but 
have won their last four 
homecoming games. One 
of those victories was a 13-0 
shutout of NLU back in 
1977. The game was also 
NSU's first and only 
shutout against the Indians. 

For some of NLU's 
gridders the game Saturday 
will be a homecoming 
within itself. Several of the 
Indian players are from 
Natchitoches, including 
Danny and David Dumars, 
Larry Hamilton, and Alvin 
Moses, all of whom 
prepped at Natchitoches- 
Central High school.

Rain delays football 

With the visits from hurricanes David and Frederic 
evident even here in the north, it is probably a good 
ideas to begin some intramural action indoors. That 
wish can be granted this week as the Co-ed two-on-tw 
basketball tournament begins today. Competition 
extend through Thursday. 

Last Thursday the Flag Football season began as 
scheduled. There were nine games played, there of those 
in torrential rain. The six teams that played at 5:30 g 0l 
a taste of what it is like playing football in Pittsburg 
during the month of December. The rain began about! 
the same time the teams were half finished with their) 
games and it ended when the players were already home 
drying off. All gaes were cancelled Wednesday and 

Here are last Tuesday's scores: Brotherhood 14-6 
over the Rough Riders; the Steelers whipped the Glove 
Club 30-0; Phi Beta Sigma downed Cossa's Bandits 14 
6; the Condors trounced the Cougars 30-0; Theta Chi 
edged by KA's No. 2 16-14; Phi Mu pounded Delta Zeta 
30-0; Conine defeated from King Pins 8-2; The 
University of Yang took a 12-6 victory from the Rapides 
Bullets; and Tri-Sigma slipped by Sigma Kappa 12-8. 

For those of you who would rather be playing tennis, 
you have until Thursday to register for the singles 
tournament which will be held October 1-19. The 
Horseshoe matches have been rescrieduled for October 
30-31 due to rain. 

The intramural Swim Meet was completed yesterday 
in the indoor Natatorium. Results can be heard over 
"Campus RecreACTION' tonight at 8:00 on KNWD. 

Close to one-half of this semesters action is behind 
the activities on the schedule. Here is a list of those

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

This question concerns the NSU 
Demon Band. The band seemed to 
be on the rise with the success and 
growth it experienced last fall. But, 
during the NSU-SFA halftime, they 
appeared to lack the enthusiasm, 
not to mention the numbers, of 
bands in years past. The highlight of 
halftime was the performance of the 
auxilaries, particularly the flags and 
rifles. A University the size of NSU 
should have a band of much more 
size, and better quality. I was in my 
high school band for four years, but 
I feel being in NSU's Demon Band 
would not be an asset to my college 
life, because of the attitude 
evidently expressed by the members. 
What's the problem? 

A. I cannot agree with you and your 
observation that the NSU Band 
members demonstrated lack of 
enthusiasm. Quite the contrary, I 
find this group to be an extremely 
hard working organization, and 
constantly striving to improve as a 
band. I think the positive effect last 
year's band had upon the public was 
due primarily to the new uniforms 
and not to a significant increase in 
numbers. The smaller size of this 
year's band reflects a lack of effort 
made in the immediate past to 
recruit students into the 
organization. I am confident that 
under Dr. Caldwell's leadership, 
who joined us this year as Director 
of Bands, the band will increase not 
only in size, but in quality. I would 
encourage you to visit with Dr. 
.Caldwell and perhaps you might 
change your mind and find that the 
new NSU Band would be an asset to 
your Campus involvement. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

Why is it that if you have an off- 
campus job, you cannot also have a 
job on campus? With the current 
apparent shortage in student 
workers, especially in housing, is 
there any way that rules could be 
revised or salary increased or 
something done to make working 
for the University, especially in 
housing, more attractive? 

A. It is possible for a student to hold 
an on-campus job at the same time 
he or she is holding an off-campus 
job if the total income does not 
exceed the financial aid allowable by 
the federal programs. I might point 
out that the ceiling is determined by 
the federal government and not by 


Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

The campus is certainly looking a 
lot better, as far as the grounds are 
concerned. The gress for the most 
Dart is cut, and the bushes are kept 
rimmed. The big "N" at the end of 
Central Ave. looks great, and he 
*rea around Caldwell Hall is as 
Peautiful as ever. But 
fcographically, the campus scenery 
'eems a little lopsided. Over by 
Sabine and Rapides dorms and the 
'berville Dining Hall, it looks like a 
desert compared to the "greener" 
'art of campus. It sure would be 
'ice to have a place over on our side 
*f the campus to sit on benches 
*nder some nice shade trees that 
didn't have needles falling all year 
ound, like there is on the east side 
'f campus. Is there any hope? 

f. Thank you for recognizing the 
toprovements on Campus which 
^ave been made by our Grounds 
tod Maintenance people. I think the 
totire group is working extremely 
fcrd, .and it has contributed 
jjgnificantly to the beautification of 
^orthwestern's campus. I agree 
*ith you that the area around 
*abine and Rapides dorms ;is rather 
5 arren in appearance. We hope to 
"iprove that situation as we can get 
" it. The mass of concrete in 
irking areas has not enhanced the 
%etic value of the area, but, as

Orchestra performs 
tonight on riverfront 

Mean wheels 

NSU has many old traditions connected with 
the annual Homecoming celebration, in- 
cluding the banner parade. We may have a 
new tradition in the works, though, as Dr. 
Rene Bienvenu mounted his mo-ped for the 

second consecutive year for the trip to the 
riverfront. NSU's president, contrary to 
persistent rumors, did not receive a speeding 
ticket from Campus Security, (staff photo by 
Dennis Tyler).

The Shreveport musician has

Homecoming stirs old memories 

by Doug Ireland 
Sauce Editor 

Dwight David Eisenhower, 
known simply as "Ike" to millions 
throughout the world, is President 
of the United States. The Korean 
Conflict is in its' waning stages, and 
popular General Douglas 
MacArthur has told Congress that 
"old soliders never die, they just 
fade away." Elvis Presley is a poor 
Mississippi youth who likes to play 
the guitar and sing. Bud Wilkin- 
son's Oklahoma Sooners are the 
best college football team in the 
nation. Richard Nixon, a young 
Californian, is Vice-President. 

In Natchitoches, plans are being 
made to build a two-lane bridge 
over the Red River at Grand Ecore 
Bluff. The old one-way bridge is 
becoming a dangerous driving 
hazard. On the wooded, peaceful 
campus of Northwestern State 
College, there are only five or six 
cars owned by students. Phi Kappa 
Nu, the most powerful and 
prestigious of the three campus 
fraternities, has once again 
dominated the Student Body 
Association elections. Dr. Rene 
Bienvenu is in his third year as a 
professor in the Department of 

Don Finley has been elected by 
the student body to serve as editor 
of the Current Sauce NSC's award- 
winning student newspaper. The 
tabloid-sized paper, usually eight 
pages long, comes out each 
Saturday. There is discussion but no 
real action on a proposal to abolish 
Saturday classes. 

The NSC Demon football team is 
coming off a dismal 2-7-1 record, 
and things don't look bright for 
Coach Harry "Rags" Turpin. An 
editoral the previous year in the 
Current Sauce called for his firing, 
and there is much talk that he must 
win or else. Nine straight losses to 
arch-rival Louisiana Polytechnic 
Institute, the most recent a 22-0 
pasting by the Bulldogs, do not sit 
well with the alumni. 

It is Fall, 1953, and along with 
Bienvenu and Finley, Tynes 
Hildebrand is awaiting the 
basketball season, while Eugene 
"Smiley" Christmas is a student 

These are a just a few of the 
memories that were surely relived 
last weekend, as alumni gathered 
from all over the country, and the 
world, to enjoy Homecoming at 
their alma mater, now known as 
Northwestern State University. 

That name change, and the 
"tremendous changes inthe physical 
plant" were the most suprising to 
Finley. The former Sauce editor 
dropped in the paper's office late 
last Friday afternoon to say hello, 
and to see how the paper had 
evolved since he was in charge 26 
years ago. 

Finley served as editor for two 
years, 1953 and 1954, and was paid 

$45 each month. One of his sports 
writers was Jerry Byrd, who is now 
sports editor of the Shreveport 

"I just can't get used to the 
initials NSU," smiled Finley, while 
looking over a copy of last week's 
Sauce. "NSC was what we called it 
back then." 

"So much has changed since I 
was here, I really don't know where 
to begin," he replied to a question 
about the most startling changes at 
Northwestern. "There was virtually 
nothing on the west side of the 
campus except for some frame 
buildings, four of them, which lined 
the Many highway. 

"Our main class building were 
Caldwell Hall and Warren Easton, 
and Caspari and Varnado were still 
being used. I lived in a dorm we 
called 'the Brick Shack', a two-story 
dorm, for three years with the dame 
roommate. I think he is supposed to 
be here for the game tomorrow 
night," mused Finley, who 
graduated in 1954 with a degree in 

Finley was part of the first class 
of ROTC cadets to ever graduate 
from Northwestern, and he served 
the post-graduation term in Ger- 
many. "The Korean War broke out 
two weeks after I arrived here from 
Olla my freshmen year," 
remininsed Finley. "Like a lot of 
young fellows, I deceided ROTC 
looked mighty good." 

The former editor worked for 15 
years with United Press In- 
ternational's Washington bureau 
before joining the U.S. Geological 
Society and moving to Denver, 
Col., where he now lives. He said 
dorm life had to have improved 
since his years in the "Brick 

"We didn't have a lot of room to 
get around in. There were two to a 
room— two beds, two desks, two 
chests of drawers, and two students. 
We also had a sink and a radiator, 
no air conditioning at all. There 
were only two telephones in the 
'Brick Shack', one in the middle of 
each floors hallway," recalled 

"One of our favorite pranks was 
when someone called looking for a 
dorm resident. The person who 
answered the phone would call out 
the poor fellow's name, and 
everyone would poke his head out 
the door and holler in unison, 
'Who?'. We had a great time 
pulling pranks like that on fresh- 

"We did some rather stiff stuff, 
by today's standards. When I was 
moving on campus my first year, it 
wasn't two hours after I got here 
that I had my hair completely 
shaved off the top of my head... and 
they did much worse things than 
that," Finley said. 

"It's nothing like it was when I 
left. The campus has really 
changed... for example, our athletic 
fieldnouse was the old Art Center 

beside what is now the Fine Arts 
Auditorium," said Finley. "Bullard 
Hall was a religious center. Each 
campus religious group had an 
office in there." 

"I was active in the Baptist 
Student group. We would attend 
vesper services at six each evening, 
then walk down across the train 
uacks on Second St. to the Ren- 
devous Cafe to sit around. About 
eight or ten of us would get a coke 
or fries and sit in there for hours 
just talking. I was really disap- 
pointed to see that is gone," said 
Finley of the cafe, which was 
located across from what is now the 
Kappa Sigma fraternity house. 

"We had three frats-Phi Kappa 
Nu, which I can't believe isn't 
around any more, Lambada Delta, 
and Sigma Tau Gamma. I didn't go 
greek, and I played on the first 
independent intramural team to ever 
win a championship in touch 

"We didn't do too much— we 
couldn't travel too far, because only 
about five or six students even 
owned cars then," Finley recalled. 
"Intramurals and the BSA were all 
the activity I remember well. 

"We had a great gym team, and 
once a year they would put on a 
tremendous exhibition for the 
students and town. The highlight 
was always when they would all 
paint themselves with a gold color 
and form a giant pyramid, with only 
one spotlight in the gym on them. 
Those fellows were amazing." 

Finley said during his tenure as 
editor, it usually cost about $100 to 
print an eight-page paper, compared 

to today's expense of nearly $800. 
He campaigned for editor during 
the spring of his sophomore year. 
Each of the candidates had to 
assemble a staff and publish one of 
the papers put out each spring. At 
the end of the semester, the student 
body voted on whom they wanted as 
editor, and the winner took over the 
next fall. The paper was not 
published in the summer.

features a complete array of Latin 
American percussion instruments," 
said symphony conductor Dr. J.

Crystal Gayle backs out 

by David Lavere 
Sauce News Editor 

It seems that once again, NSU is 
the bridesmaid and not the bride. 

Crystal Gayle, Loretta Lynn's 
little sister and rising star on the 
progressive-country music scene, 
was scheduled to appear in concert 
at NSU's Prather Coliseum Friday, 
Oct. 15. 

It has now been announced by the 
SUGB that the Gayle concert has 
been cancelled and MS. Gayle will 
probably not appear on the campus 
this semester. 

According to Ron Thomas 
President of the SUGB, MS. Gayr 
could not appear on Oct. 15 becaut: 
she accepted a television 
engagement for the same day. 

As of yet, the SUGB does m 
have a replacement for Ms. Gayl 
but they are working on it. If 
concert would have cost ai 
proximately $15,000. 

To make matters worse, M|r 
Gayle will be appearing at Louisiar 
T ch on Oct. 14, the night before i 
was scheduled to appear here.

If you've driven by Chaplin's 
Lake recently, you've probably 
- noticed some type of build-up in the 
north end of the lake, near the 
railroad tracks. This unsightly 
•accumulation aroused the curiosity 
of the Sauce, so we decided to do 
little snooping. 

The Problem 

The city of Natchitoches gets its 
fresh water supply from Sibley 
:Lake, near the Northwestern 
campus. The water is pumped from 
i the lake to the city's water treatment 
• plant on the east bank of Chaplin's 

At the plant, the water is treated 
to remove suspended particles of 
dirt and other foreign materials. 
Because fresh water constantly runs 
into Sibley Lake, and because the 
lake is used for recreational pur- 
poses as well, the water has a high 
concentration of these materials. 

The water is treated in a holding 
vat to settle the suspended particles, 
then aerated and moved to another 
vat where it is treated a second time. 
No water is used in Natchitoches 
until it undergoes this treatment. 

Now this is all fine and good, 
because no one wants to drink filthy 
water, and Northwestern gets its 

water from the city of Natchitoches. 
However, it is this treatment that is 
causing the build-up in Chaplin's 

A spokesman at the water 
treatment plan told us the water was 
treated with alum in the first vat and 
lime in the second. To get a clearer 
definition of the substances used to 
clean the water, we approached Dr. 
Dick Stallings of the biology 
department. Dr. Stallings told us the 
alum used is aluminum sulfate 
which "clings tenaciously" to 
particles in the water and causes 
them to settle to the bottom of the 
vat. The lime is added to correct for

Band scholarships have been upped from the usual

low pH by the alum reaction. 

Of course, after a certain amount 
of water has been treated, the first 
vat must be cleaned of the residue. 
This residue, or sludge, is filtered 
into Chaplin's Lake. 

Mayor Robert DeBlieux of 
Natchitoches told us, "They 
decided to run it into Chaplin's 
Lake 15 years ago because it was the 
most economical method of 
disposing of the sludge. Our 
sewerage system would not handle 
that thick stuff, but it should never 
have been dumped into the lake. 
That was wrong." 

The Effects on the Lake 

According to a graduate study of 
the lake by William Goodger and 
Susan M. Laborde, the sludge that 
is filtered from the water is 
precipitated out as an aluminum 
hydroxide floe, due to the chemical 
reaction between the water and the 
alum. This sludge, or floe, has the 
consistency of jelly or a very thick 

Dr. Ray Baumgardner, head of 
the biology department, said, 
"Aluminum hydroxide is non-toxic 
as we know it, so it's not poisoning 
the lake. Besides the looks of the 
stuff, the main effect is the actual 
filling in of the lake. The sludge is so 
thick fish can't swim through it, so I 
would say that it decreases the 
spawning areas of the lake. It also 
affects the bottom-dwellers in that 
section of the lake because they 
can't live under the stuff." 

Dr. Stallings stated, "I would 
think the main effect is aesthetic. 
That sludge ruins the looks of an 
otherwise beautiful lake." 

Goodger and Laborde found the 
water to have twice the hardness of 
Sibley Lake. This more than likely is 
due to the alum. They also found 
the concentration of aluminum in 
the north end of the lake to be 
almost 50 times greater than the 
south end, and over 200 times 
greater than Sibley Lake. 

One possible good effect of the 
high concentration of aluminum is 
the lower percentage of suspended 
particles in Chaplin's Lake. Dr. 
Baumgardner said, "The alum 
might be keeping the water cleaner, 
but it could be because of fewer 
activities in the lake." 

What's Being Done About It 

Everyone we talked to agreed that 
doing something about the sludge is 
a huge problem. Of course, all agree 
the city needs to stop dumping the 
j>ludgje into the lake. A spokesman

at the water treatment plant felt 
something should be done soon 
because the sludge is going to ac- 
cumulate faster and faster. The 
spokesman, who preferred to 
remain nameless, told us, "Right 
now, we are pumping five to six 
million gallons of water a day. 
That's an increase of two million 
gallons a day in the last year. The 
more water we pump, the more 
sludge there's going to be. Almost a 
ton a day is being pumped in now." 

Mayor DeBlieux said he has been 
working to get the problem 
corrected. Presently, an engineering 
study is being done by the K. 
Thomas Engineering Company of 
Baton Rouge. According to Mayor 
DeBlieux, the firm is checking out 
the feasibility of building two 
holding ponds near the water 
treatment plant. If built, the sludge 
will be pumped into the ponds and 
allowed to settle. The ponds could 
then be cleaned out and the sludge 
could be hauled away. The clean 
water from the ponds could then be 
pumped into Chaplin's Lake. 

The Problem of Clean-up 

After Natchitoches stops dum- 
ping the sludge into the lake, the 
problem of removing what's there 
will arise. 

According to Dr. Baumgardner, 
"The sludge will not cooperate. Its 
consistency makes it tough to 
handle. And then, once you do get it 
out, there's the problem of what to 
do with it. The sludge retains water 
so well, it could take years in the sun 
to dry it out. Where are you going to 
put it to dry?" 

Mayor DeBlieux told us, "The 
lake was cleaned out once before, 
seven years ago. It created a real 
problem for us. We had to drain 
Chaplin's Lake nearly dry and get in 
there with heavy equipment to get it 
out. The sludge has such a strange 
consistency that it would run out of 
the buckets and the trucks being 
used to haul it away. We had a heck 
of a time with it. 

"That clean-up operaion cost the 
city of Natchitoches $20,000, which 
was pretty expensive. That's been 
the problem. We can't afford to get 
it cleaned up. 

"We advertised for bids recently 
to have the sludge removed. Of the 

two we've received, one company 
wants $180,000 to remove it from 
the lake and leave it on the site or 
$275,000 to remove it completely. 
The other company wants $103,600 
to remove it from the lake and leave 
it on the site, or $1 18,000 to remove 
it completely. I was absolutely 
astounded. We just don't have that 
kind of money. I just can't believe 
that it has gone up so much in seven 

"Of course, we've got to do 
something about it and we're going 
to. It's not going to be an immediate 
thing, but I'm working closely with 
Dr. Bienvenu to get it straightened 
out. We may have to cut a lot of 
corners next year to get the money, 
but we're going to clean it up." 

The Conclusion 

If the sludge bothers you, remain 
calm, because eventually it is going 
to be cleaned out of the lake for 
good. Most everyone we talked to 
suggested paddling out to the ac- 
cumulation and running our hands 
through it, to give us a better un- 
derstanding of what has to be dealt 
with. Well, we did, and it is not 
something we want to run our hands 
through often. We suggest you do 
the same, and if you come up with 
some brilliant idea how to get rid of 
the stuff, we're sure the city of 
Natchitoches would be eternally 
grateful. Who knows? There might 
be some use for the stuff.

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

October already? 

They say time flies when you are 
having fun. If that is so, somebody 
is having the time of his life, because 
this is already October. Now, some 
folks may say "so what?", but if 
theu stop to think, they'll realize 
this is a pretty signifigant month 
every year, and especially this year. 

On the more enjoyable side of 
things, it is a big month for sports 
fans. As a former sports editor, I 
have to confess a more than passing 
interest in most sports, and football 
in particular. The professional 
season is more than five weeks old, 
and is to the point where things 
begin to fall into place for the better 
teams, and fall apart for the rest. 
The same generalization can also be 
applied to the collegiate and high 
school ranks, so I'd be lying if I said 
I wasn't pleased by the way the 
Demons looked against NLU. If 
they can maintain the same intensity 
for the upcoming games with 
Southeastern and La Tech, this 
could be a very suprising season for 
NSU. The NLU game, simply put, 
was the best Demon effort since last 
year's Homecoming win over 
McNeese. Of course, last week's win 
was a home game, but I have 
confidence in the Demons and I 
think they will have a better season 
than many fans expected. 

Also for sports fans, this month 
marks the return of the World 
Series, that annual television ratings 
extravaganza for all of us baseball 
nuts. It is the climax of American's 
summer pastime and seems to bring 
out heroic efforts in the most 
mediocre players. 

Which, in a roundabout way, 
reminds me of another October 
climax to something that has been 
going on all summer — the gover- 
nor's race. It has been, in most 
cases, a lifetime ambition for the 
candidates and repaying campaign 
debts may become a lifetime 
obligation for a couple of them. 

This is the month they have all 
been waiting for, especially those 
running close to the bottom in most 
polls. Polls are generally, but not 
always entirely, an accurate in- 
dication of public opinion: They 
are the only measuring stick we have 
seen are reasonably accuraate, Dave 
Treen seems a good bet to grab one 
of the other spot is anybody's guess, 
since over one-third of those per- 
sons polled, in almost every poll, 
say they remain undecided even with 
the election less than four weeks 

Speaking of elections, the parish 
sheriff's race is certainly one of the 
hottest local races in the past 20 
years. The incumbent Sam James, 
who some folks say held an iron 
hand over parish going-ons during 
his tenure in office, is retiring. His 
chief deputy, Boyd Durr, and Norm 
Fletcher the fomer director of the 
Natchitoches Parish Civil Defense 
Association, are candidates for the 
post. Durr says law enforcement 

experience is the most important 
attribute for a sheriff, while Flet- 
cher cites a statement by the 
president of the LA. Sheriffs 
Association that modern sheriffs are 
more adminstrators than law en- 
forcers. The race is dead even, local 
political sages say, and way too 
close to call. 

Almost too close to call, as far as 
many students are concerned are the 
dreaded mid-terms. They are fast 
approaching, and the closer they 
get, the more things we think of to 
call them. Then again, a lot of 
teachers don't like them too much 

But for the NSU students (and in 
recent years, especially, the Tech 
students and football team,) the 
highlight of October is State Fair 
week, wrapped up by the annual 
Tech-NSU match. Now, don't get 
me wrong and think I'm a 
pessimistic so-and-so. It is a fact 
that Tech has won the last eight 
games, and most of those wins have 
been lopsided. But the Demons 
seem to have a good chance this year 
to come out on top. 

Tech is admittedly not enjoying 
the best season thus far. The 'Dogs 
have but 33 players left on first-year 
coach Larry Beightol's roster, 
according to inside reports. They 
did have to postpone a junior- 
varsity contest with Northeast that 
had been scheduled for last week, 
NLU sources said, which lends 
credence to the report of a small 
roster. But while leafing through 
the Tech Talk , I was impressed by 
the attitude expressed by Techsters 
who are suffering what is for them 
an unfamiliar situation since the 
'Dogs are 0-4 and have scored only 
13 points while allowing 83. People 
at Tech seem to be 100 percent 
behind their team, even now. 

Right now, everyone is behind the 
Demons, too, but I wonder what 
might happen if NSU slips and loses 
to a tough Southeastern team in 
Hammond next weekend. It is a fact 
that our road record stinks, and 
Strawberry Stadium (yes, that's 
what they call it) has been a bad 
place for NSU recently. 

If the folks at Tech can support 
an 0-4 team like they are doing now, 
I hope Demon fans will get behind a 
3-1 (or, at worst, 2-2) team come 
Oct. 20. 

Of course, there is more to State 
Fair week than the football game. In 
fact, some people even forget about 
the game by Saturday night, for 
various reasons. It is THE social 
week of the year for NSU and Tech 
students. That takes its toll on 
many, as students try to squeeze a 
month's worth of partying into one 

Yes, time flies when you're 
having fun. It didn't take me 
anytime at all to write this column. I 
hope on November 1, I can look 
back and wonder where October 
went to so quickly. 

Weighty thoughts 

Without a doubt, in my book 
(and this is my book-well, at least 
my column), the fieldhouse-weight 
usage issue is the most controversial 
of the early fall here on campus. 
Many non-athletes are upset 
because they have been denied 
access to the weights in the new $1 .4 
million facility, and it is hard not to 
understand their gripe. 

They maintain thereare no 
weights available for general student 
use on campus, and that since their 
money helped build the fieldhouse, 
they should be able to use it when 
they please. Well, the non-athletes 
are zero for two, and most don't 
know it. 

Actually, there are weights 
available for general student use in 
the concourse in Prather Coliseum. 
That's what I was told, but that is 
not always true. There are indeed 
weights for non-athletes' use in the 
Coliseum, but they are kept under 
ock and key, and thus seem 
naccessable to most students. The 
:atch is that students must obtain 
he keys to the weight room from 
he basketball office. Students 
omplain there is never anyone in 
he offices who knows where the 
;eys are, or that the offices are 
locked when students want to use 
the weights. The folks in the 
^asketball office say they are more 
Jjhan willing to give students access 
to the weights, but virtually no one 
fias asked for the keys. Head coach 

Tynes Hildebrand even sent a memo 
to Student Services Director Cecil 
Knotts that said an time between 8 
a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays the 
room will be available for students. 

The reason the room is locked, 
according to Hildebrand is that 
there are often high school students 
in the Coliseum. Hildebrand says, 
"Students can always get a key from 
by office." 

Admittedly, the weights locked in 
the Coliseum are not enough for the 
entire student body, and are not 
located in the convenient enough 
location for many students. But, 
for now, they are all we have. 

What can students look forward 
to, as far as weights are concerned? 
The answer is still up in the air, or at 
best in the negociation stages. For a 
short period last month, it looked as 
though the problem was going to be 
solved, but plans fell through just as 
the solution was about to be an- 

It becomes more and more 
evident that the chief responsibility 
forgetting some weights for student 
use rests with the Intramural 
department. The primary problem 
they have run into is the huge ex- 
pense involved. Another secondary 
problem that will have to be solved 
is finding a place to put the weights. 
They must be both accessible to 
students, and properly supervised 
by Intramural officials. These 
problems must be solved before the 


Variable plan gets positive vote 

, Curr 

By Mary Beth Walls 
Sauce Opinion Editor 

According to Cecil Knotts, 
Director of Student Services for 
NSU, the new variable food plan is 
a great success. 

In talking with Mr. Knotts about 
the new food plan (which is the 
subject of this week's SauceSurvey, 
I found him to be very co-operative. 

"There are some minor problems 
with the plan, but since this is the 
first semester that such a different 
option is offered, I think you can 
expect a few rocky places. But these 
are, and will be, corrected. 

"I think the major problem we 
had with the variable program is in 
the way it was presented to the 
students. There was much 
misunderstanding as to how the new 
ticket could be used. For instance, 
many students bought a variable 
meal ticket, but were going to eat all 
of their meals in Iberville Dining 
Hall. These students found that if 
they used the variable ticket the 
way, they would run out of money 
before the new tickets were issued. 
For this reason, students holding 
variable meal tickets were allowed 
three days to switch over to the 
conventional five-day or seven-day 
meal ticket, if they so desired. Next 
semester, there will be some changes 
in the way that the variable meal 
plan will be explained, so that all 
students may understand which plan 
is right for them. 

"Approximately 89 percent of 
dorm residents have some type of 
meal ticket this semester (either 
conventional or variable). I feel this 
high percentage is due to the fact 
that something like the variable plan 
is being offered - it is very con- 
venient for many students. They 

Radical Rag 

have a choice now , whereas before, 
they had none. I think this increases 
meal participation on campus." 

Mr. Knotts also had a very in- 
teresting figure to relate. On 
Monday through Friday, Iberville 
Dining Hall (breakfast, lunch, and 
dinner) and the Student Union 
cafeteria (lunch) serve 19,000 meals 
on meal tickets alone - not counting 
cash sales. So the next time you 
complain about the eggs being 
slightly cold or over-cooked, 
remember how many plates the 
cooks had to prepare. However, 
Mr. Knotts said that all student 
opinions are wanted, good or bad, 
so let them know what you think 
about the food service, and other 
things around campus. 

One student polled who had a 
variable ticket said, "It's working 
out fine - I never have to eat in 
Iberville. I live off campus, and this 
way, I can grab something to eat 
real quick before going to work." 

Elisha Mertens is one of the 
students who have a regular meal 
ticket, and wish they could change. 
"I have a seven-day meal ticket, but 
1 really should have a variable. I 
simply didn't understand what the 
variable plan was all about. There's 
usually more of a choice of food in 
the Union. So I guess I'll wait until 
next semester, and probably get a 

Mr. David Box, director of the 
University Restaurant (Student 
Union cafeteria) had many good 
things to say about the variable 
plan. "The variable plan, so far, has 
been terrific. Our business in the 
Union has increased about four 
times as much over the other 
semesters. At times, we have a very 
minor line back-up, but that's 
understandable. Most students, 

though, have fairly flexible 
schedules, so that everyone is trying 
to be served at one time. 

"We usually have four or five 
selections of food for lunches. And 
now , we have to have at least three 
pans of back-up food in the kitchen, 
especially on the more popular 
items. I've hired a good bit of extra 
help, mostly students. 

When asked if he thought the 
students liked the new plan, Mr. 
Box said, "The students must like 
it, because the same ones eat here 
every day. I'd say at least 60 percent 
of the food bought here is on the 
variable meal ticket. 

"From 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. is our 
busiest time. From 2 p.m. until 4:30 
is a fairly steady stream of students, 
and then the supper crowd comes in. 
We close at 6:30, just a Iberville 

"We do very little cash business 
on the week-ends, and so far, 
there's been no success at the Rec 
Complex snack bar. But I'm sure 
that is just because of the season. 
I'm looking forward to next 
summer, because a majority of the 
students are out there then. 

"I think this new plan will help 
bring up enrollment, and benefit the 
college as a whole, because many 
potential students will be drawn by 
this type of choice. But let me say 
that the Student Union cafeteria is 
not designed to serve many people 
at one time. There's just not enough 

Mr. Box also stated that he was 
going to try to improve the food, 
especially the short order line. Also, 
he related that he would be glad to 
help students any way he could, and 
that their suggestions were always 

One person who is not so satisfied 

Better groups equal better crowds 

Why is it that the students at 
Northwestern can never get 
anything they ask for and are forced 
to accept whatever substitute is 
forced upon them? 

In the past few years time and 
time again, the students have begged 
the administration and the SUGB to 
give them some really big-name 
entertainment. But it has always 


fallen on deaf ears. 

In a recent SauceSurvey, almost 
all students interviewed stated that 
they would gladly pay a few extra 
dollars at the door if they could see 
some real big-names. 

And as usual, nobody listens. 

There is no reason why we can't 
have a really well-known group to 
come here during the Christmas 

I was very happy to see the ad- 
dition of Hot Sauce to this fall's 
Current Sauce. I was impressed with 
President Bienvenu and I thought 
this column would keep him close to 
the students' problems. 

Well, I may have been wrong. I 
have read every issue of the paper 
since Doug Ireland took the reigns 
this past sumer, and I have noticed a 
certain patterns have developed in 
President Bienvenu's answers. 

First of all, he avoids many of the 
pointed questions and secondly, 
embarasses the students at times. In 
the summer he received a question 
about averaging your grades when 
you drop a course. The unlucky soul 
who asked the question never did 
understand the answer he received 
so he lost faith in Hot Sauce. 

I still enjoy the Hot Sauce column 
but I feel some of the answers have 

short-changed the students. 

Disappointed student 
(Editor's note: We are also very 
happy to have Hot Sauce as a 
regular feature in the paper. We felt 
that it serves a useful purpose as a 
means of communication between 
the student body and Dr. Bienvenu. 
Dr. Bienvenu has answered every 
question and comment we have 
forwarded to him, and has been 
willing to work during his free time 
at night and over the weekends in 
order to answer all of the Hot 
Sauce. We already have solved 
several problems thanks to the 
column, and Dr. Bienvenu is 
working on several more, such as 
the weight usage situation and the 
improvement of campus roads. Not 
all his answers may please you, but 
you do get all your questions an- 

Lights Festival. 

Now I'm not talking about 
getting the Rolling Stones or Led 
Zepplin, but how about Z.Z. Top (I 
know, we had them here once 
already, but they are still good), 
Foghat, Styx, Meatloaf, Marshall 
Tucker, Sea Level, or even David 
Allen Coe. 

These group are relatively well 
known and usually do put on a good 
show, so it would be profitable to 
have them come here. It is just good 
business sense to know that the 
better known groups will draw 
larger crowds and larger crowds 
draw more money. 

Come Christmas Lights when 
over 150,000 visitors descend on 

weights are purchased, and as far as 
administration officials can see, 
there are no easy answers. 

So what can students do now? 
Just do what the athletic department 
is used to doing... sit back and wait 
patiently. No amount of griping 
will change anything, and if we're 
lucky, the Intramural department 
and administration officials will 
find a pot of gold at the end of a 
rainbow, or something like that. At 
any rate, get used to the weights in 
the Coliseum, because it seems as 
though they're the only ones we'll 
have for a while. Maybe by next 
year the problem will be solved. 
Let's hope it doesn't take that long. 
Now, about the fieldhouse. 

Many students still think that 
student funds were used to construct 
the fieldhouse, and they should be 
able to use what they paid for. 
Well, sorry to disappoint that 
group, but student funds were not 
used to build the new fieldhouse. 
None. Zero. Nada. Students didn't 
pay for the building. It was funded 
through a capital outlay from the 

The building was also built with 
one thing in mind-the NSU athletic 
program— and it should have been. 
We don't build an office building to 
accomodate classrooms, or a band 
building to include a stage for 
theatre majors. 

The value this building can have 
to the Northwestern athletic 

program is immense. Finally, we 
have a facility that compares very 
favorably with any in the state, and 
for that matter, the nation. It will 
help in improving the athletes we 
now have, and in recruiting more 
"blue-chip" high school stars. It is 
one of the most functional buildings 
of its kind anywhere. 

Students are not the only group 
riled up by the new fieldhouse. 
Some faculty members have 
privately stated they are furious that 
the athletic department has a new 
facility, and they say not enough 
emphasis is being placed on the 
academic side of the university. 

My answer to them is be patient. 
No one can deny that the athletic 
program is the most publicized 
aspect of most universities, and that 
athletic programs also make, not 
lose, money for the schoo. It has 
been very easy to see the problems 
caused by the lack of a quality 
facility for the athletic department. 
Now that they finally have what 
they want, we can begin to see what 
they will do with it. Only after a 
long period of evaluation will we be 
able to look back and say it was 
worth it, or that it was not needed in 
the first place. 

Meanwhile, academic standards 
continue to rise here, and plans for 
new facilities such as the Fine Arts 
Center are becoming realities. 
Things are indeed looking up here, 
and not only for the athletic

various issues. They both tried to get somone from the

with the variable plan is Shrevepg 
junior Sherri Tally. "I guess th 
variable plan works out for son 
people, but many, like mysejl; Qct , 
misunderstood the true purpol,--.' 
behind it. My major complaint u i 
that we were not informed that-tJe»j»»»»»»"»»" 
variable ticket would not allow f^; 
three meals a day in Inberville (thetlt: 
just isn't enough money on thti: 
ticket). Also, several people did nty": 
receive sheets informing them that a 
switch would be allowed during 
those three days. But that may 
someone else's fault, not the offir.,,: 
of Cecil Knotts. If I had the chance 
I'd definitely switch to a regular 
meal ticket." 

A freshman from Houma, Amil lt .: - 
Smith, was enjoying a meal boughfe: 
on her variable ticket when she vvajj u 
polled. "I really like this plan ' 
because you can eat both in thjtj 1 
Student Union and the cafeteria 
Most of the time, it can be a uj , 
cheaper to eat in the Union." 

"It's a good plan. It's been a33d 
more successful than I thoughts!! 
would be only a few details need to! 
be ironed out. One thing I really lij 
about using the variable plan inS 
Student Union is that you only p^l 
for what you eat. I couldn't cojjgl 
the times I've gone to Iberville, arm 
then only eaten a salad." Such wa> 
the opinion of Diana Kemp, s 
sophomore from Bossier City. 

So, the general consensus seem to; 
be that those students who bought):: ;.Qff j t 
the variable plan understanding howi. ^ , 
it could be used are very satisfied- ° 
with it. However, many students,;'L emo 
given the opportunity, would switch 
either to a regular meal ticket, or to 
the variable. All in all, the variabkf 
plan is very important for many 
reasons, the largest being thatp.-R aym 
students now have a choice of wlwtteitoche 
they want to eat, and where. Nor

As Finley settled on a desk in the

when we told him he was sitting on 
Dr. Carr's daughter's desk. Karen 
Carr is the Sauce business manager,

"Now if that doesn't date me, 
nothing does," he smiled. "Now

A Sigma Kappa Cowboy Captures The Indians th 


Caplan's Natchitoches Williams & Bienville 

Delaney, Dunbar lead Demons 
to 20-14 win over Northeast 

by Buddy Wood 
Sauce Sports Editor 

Lightning quick, long scoring plays have 
been the rule, not the exception, in the two 
most recent Northwestern-Northeast football 
games. Last year in a big victory for the 
homestanding Indians, a 79-yard pass play on 
NLU's second play from scrimmage put a 
touchdown on the board for the Tribe. This 
year, though, it was just the opposite. It was 
opposite because speedburner Joe Delaney of 
NSU took a pitch on the first play from 
scrimmage and traveled 89 yards for a score as 
the Demons turned the tables of a year ago. 

Last year it was all NLU. This time, however, 
it was all NSU as Delaney followed perfect 
blocks from Fred Galloway, Mark Mathews, 
and Randy Liles on his scoring jaunt that really 
set the tempo for the game. Before the first 
quarter was over, the Demons had rolled to a 
17-0 lead, the same score they trailed by in last 
year's disaster at Monroe. The game looked as 
though it would follow the same script of a year 
ago, but the Demons wasted several scoring 
opportunities which could have put the game 
away early, and the script changed moods. 

A strong defensive performance by the 
Demons allowed them to hang for a 20-14 
victory, but the game should have never been 
anywhere near that close. NSU led 20-0 with 
eight minutes to go in the Homecoming contest 
when the Indians finally got on the board on an 
eight-yard run by Nathan Johnson, which 
ended a 60-yard drive that began as a result of 
an interception snared off by Vic Minor. The 
score should have been just a matter of pride 
for the NLU bunch, because the game should 
have been well out of reach at that point, but it 
wasn't, and suddenly the partisan NSU crowd 
of 12,989 began to wonder if a much-wanted 
victory just might by chance slip away. 

The fans and everyone else certainly had to 
wonder when the Indians recovered an on-side 
kick and promptly tacked on another score, a 
one-yarder by Johnson to pull within six points, 
if the Demons would fall under the Indian 
tomahawk. It really got hairy when NSU took 
over on downs at the 1:01 mark left in the 

game. NLU had just failed in an attempt to 
score for the third time after the Demons were 
forced to punt after NLU had unsuccesfully 
tried another on-side kick. 

The Demon defense rose to the occasion and 
NLU didn't score their third touchdown, but 
Guess what? It still wasn't over. It got terribly 
hairy when a bad exchange from center Warren 
Griffith and quarterback Kenny Philibert 
resulted in a fumble, which Northeast 
recovered, and they still had yet another chance 
to send the Demons home crying. But on the 
very next play, freshman quarterback Robin 
Wasson was intercepted by Demon safety J. P. 
Dunbar, and the Demons held onto the ball and 
finally the clock showed all zeros, giving the 
Demons their second win of the year. 

Dunbar's interception was by no means non- 
dramatic. Had he not leaped high in the air to 
pick off the enemy aerial, it is almost certain 
that NLU's Tony Morrison would have had the 
pass and trotted into the end zone, because he 
was open at the 15-yard line. But, as the saying 
goes, Dunbar "rose to the occasion." Fact is he 
rose about two feet off the turf on that par- 
ticular occasion. 

The Demons were simply awesome in the 
first stanza. After Delaney's run, NLU got 
nowhere against a fired-up Demon defense and 
had to punt. NSU promptly went 63 yards in 12 
plays to the Tribe nine-yard line, and Dale 
Quickel booted a 27-yard field goal for a 10-0 

Three minutes later, Sonny Louis of NSU 
blocked a Bill Weimer punt, and the Demons 
were back in business again. Brett Knecht 
bulled up the middle from six yards out three 
plays later, and the Demons had a 17-0 bulge. 

The defense of NSU was so strong in the first 
half that the Indians could manage only two 
first downs in the half. However, after a 
brilliant first quarter, the offense wasted two 
golden scoring opportunties that could have 
made the score very lopsided, on failure coming 
on the NLU one-yard line when the Demons 
had three chances to go over for the score. And 
so it stood, 17-0 at halftime. 

The Demons wasted yet another scoring 
chance midway through the third period. 

Darrell Toussaint picked off a Bud Cespiva 
pass and returned it 27 yards, and after a late 
hit penalty, the Demons had the ball on the 
Northeast 27-yard line. Six plays later, the 
Demons came up short on a fourth down and 
one situation, and the Indians took over. Three 
minutes later, after an NLU punt, the Demons 
moved down to the Tribe 19, but a Philibert 
fumble was recovered by NLU, and the Indians 
began to move. 

NLU moved from its own 34 to the Demon 
six-yard line in five plays. On a second and 
goal-to-go situation, Nathan Johnson fumbled 
at the six, and NSU's Paul Rowlett recovered 
the loose ball in what may have been the games 
biggest play in the long run. 

NSU's other points came on a 32-yard field 
goal by Quickel that came as a result of 
Dunbar's first interception at the NLU 35-yard 

Delaney finished with his best effort by far 
this season as he put together 157 yards on 21 
carries for the Demons, who totaled 305 yards 
on the ground.

when senior strong safety

Lee wins football contest again 

Jim Lee won the Current 
Sauce-Pizza Inn football 
contest for the second time 
in three weeks to become 
1 the first repeat winner in the 
newly added contest. Lee, 
the contest's first week 
winner, again receives a 
large pizza for winning. 

Kevin Murphy, a 
sophomore from Mon- 
tgomery, won second place 

in this week's poll, and he 
receives the medium pizza 
for his finish. Both Lee and 
Murphy missed only two 
games, but Lee again won 
on the tiebreakers. 

Third place goes to 
Kenneth Terrell, who will 
receive a small pizza for his 
entry. Honorable mention 
this week goes to Sandra 

There were a total of 45 
entries submitted this week. 

Remember to get your 
entry in before the Friday 
noon deadline. Sports 
Editor Buddy Wood and 
contest director David 
Stamey were both pleased 
with the contest's 
popularity through the first 
three weeks. Stamey said 
they he expects maybe 75 

entries in coming weeks 
when some of the really 
traditional games are 

Stamey also expressed 
appreciation to Mr. 
O'Brien, proprietor of the 
Natchitoches Pizza Inn 
located on Hwy. 1, for his 
cooperation and for fur-

spectacular 89 yard run off 
right tackle by NSU's Joe 
Delaney on the first play of 
the game. The "perfectly 
executed" play sparked the 
Demons to a 17-0 halftime 
lead. Picture perfect blocks 
were made by Fred 
Galloway, Mark Mathews, 
and Barry Rubin on the 
right side of the Demon 
offensive line. Delaney 
went on to rush for 157 
yards on the evening. 

NSU's head coach A.L. 
Williams was very proud of 
the win. "We've decided 
we had to establish our 
running game in order to 
win." We knew that

defense of NLU, we would

The Demons moved well 
behind their young of- 
fensive line as they picked 
up their highest rushing 
total of the season by far 
(305 yards). Demons of- 
fensive line coach Joe 
Raymond Peace described 
their play as "one of the 
best efforts overall in a long 
time." He added, "They 
played as well as I've ever 
seen, play in and play out." 

Part of the reason for this 
success was the use of two 
tight ends on the line to help 
with blocking. Coach 
Peace praised tight ends 
Barry Rubin and Doug 
Manning as being "two of 
the finest blocking tight 
ends anywhere." 

"I was concerned with 
our miscues at the end, 
especially our goal line 
offense," Williams said. 
"But NLU had a good goal 
line defense. Other teams 
might have folded under the 

Williams said he would 
welcome the open date the 
Demons now face because 
he has some players that 
need to heal bruises. 

The Demons also have 
some defensive mending to 
correct as they only had 10 
players on the field their 
last two defensive plays of 
the game. One of the NSU 
coaches jokingly remarked 
that the Demons thought 
Northeast would have a 
better chance attacking 10 
men since they had been 
confused all night anyway.

Wood Working 

with Buddy Wood 

The start of something big 

Well, it took two games for it to 
happen, but NSU's explosive ground 
game finally came around to form. Not 
only did Joe Delaney and Brett Knecht 
have their best games of the young 
season, but another group of Demons had 
their best effort on the campaign, namely 
the young and inexperienced Demon 
offensive line. 

After two sub-par outings against 
Stephen F. Austin and Texas- Arlington, 
the Demon ballcarriers, along with their 
blockers, put together a brilliant per- 
formance against old rival Northeast. 
Neither Delaney nor his comrads wasted 
any time in deciding to bust loose. 

Delaney found daylight on the game's 
first play from scrimmage and went 89 
yards for a touchdown, letting everybody 
know he came ready to run. But his run 
was made possible by crushing blocks 
from the right side of the Demon's of- 
fensive line. Guard Fred Galloway, the 
only full-time starter of the group from a 
year ago, and tackle Mark Mathews 
simply wiped out the left side of NLU's 5- 
2 defense, enabling Joe D. to get past the 
line of scrimmage. Once that happened, it 
was all over, because nobody on the 
Indian defensive unit could match 
Delaney's speed in the open field. 

Delaney, he of the 9.4 speed in the 
hundred, was certainly overdue for a big 
effort. He managed only 46 yards on 12 
carries in last season's finale against 
Southeastern, and he had accumulated 
only 57 yards on 24 lugs this season 
through two contests. So for Joe, that was 
a long time to go without exploding. 

Knecht came through with a big effort 
as well. To go along with Delaney's 157 
yards on 21 carries, Brett totaled 76 yards 
on just nine totes, did a fine job of 
blocking from his fullback position, and 
scored the other NSU touchdown on a six 
yard burst up the middle late in the first 
period. His run was set up by beautiful 
trap blocking from center Warren 
Griffith and guards Galloway and Pat 

Another member of the Demon 
backfield, unheralded but always con- 
sistent Mark Schroeder, put together a 
good effort with 43 yards on 14 carries. 
Schroeder, truly a clutch player, is usually 
called upon in tough, short yardage 
situations, and he responded well against 

the Indians. He even got into the passing 
act as he completed a halfback option 
pass to James Bennett good for 24 yards, 
with JB making a splendid catch on the 

Other members of the Demon offensive 
line who did a fine job blocking are tackle 
Johnny Skinner and tight end Barry 
Rubin, both of whom seemed to get it all 
together as did their cohorts on the of- 
fensive line. 

Quarterback Kenny Philibert even got 
into the rushing act. He only had to throw 
the ball seven times, completing four and 
having two picked off, but he ran the ball 
13 times for 41 yards, one of those runs a 
17 yarder down the sideline to the Nor- 
theast 11 -yard line which set up Knecht's 
score. Rubin and Bennett each caught two 
passes on the night to lead in that 

Another major improvement since the 
season started is the kicking game. 
Placekicker Dale Quickel, a freshman 
from Arkansas, had his best game of the 
season, too. Dale booted two field goals 
and was successful on both extra point 
attempts to give the Demons a big lift. As 
the season progresses, several games may 
be influenced greatly by his kicking. 

Scott Ray, another freshman from 
Shreveport-Airline, continued to do an 
excellent job on kickoffs. The coverage 
on the kickoff teams improved 
tremendously over the past week since the 
UTA contest. 

Rubin, in his first season as punter, 
continued his fine punting. His kicks 
usually give the Demon special teams 
members plenty of time for pursuit, and 
they did a good job of containing NLU's 
dangerous return man David Dumars. 

The Demon defense as a whole con- 
tinued to shine. After a frustrating effort 
against UTA, the D bounced back with a 
super effort Saturday night. They kept the 
NLU offense in check most of the night, 
and the play on the line of scrimmage was 
superb from the Demon defensive unit. 

The so-called weak spots of the NSU 
team are suddenly getting stronger. The 
offense as a whole is coming around, and 
the defense continues to remain steady. 
Should improvement continue all the way 
around, and if the Demons make more of 
their scoring opportunities in the future, a 
winning season just may be a reality.:

Hot Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
president Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
have a question, comment, com- 
plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(room 225-A in Kyser Hall) and 
we'll pass it along to Dr. Bienvenu. 
Hot Sauce contributions do not 
have to be signed. 

Dr. Bienvenu: 

I Q. I recently drove through the 
campus at 2 a.m. and caught a red 
light. Honestly Dr. B., can't 
something be done to change the 
traffic signal on campus to a 
flashing caution light after peak 
traffic hours. I felt pretty ridiculous 
sitting at a stop light with no one 
ground for miles. 

A. I spoke to Chief Lee con- 
cerning this matter and he informs 
me that action has already been 
initiated in trying to get the 
Highway Department to assist us in 
obtaining the equipment necessary 
to set up this system. Our Traffic 
Committee also considers this 
change to be an advisable move, and 
I personally hope that it can be 
accomplished within a reasonable 
period of time. Our present light 
system is not equipped to provide 
this service. 

Dr. Bienvenu: 

Q. Are there any concrete plans to 
clean up Chaplin's Lake? The 
article in the Current Sauce was 
good, but we didn't hear your side 
M it. Also, is there any chance we 
till ever be able to swim in there? 

I A. I am in receipt of a letter from 
Mayor DeBlieux informing me that 
;he City is advertising for bids for 
the removal of the sludge in 
Chaplins Lake. Mayor DeBlieux 
also informed me, as you have no 
, doubt read in the paper, that 
(engineering studies are also un- 
perway to eliminate future problems 
pf this type. 

| Years ago swimming was allowed 
it the upper end of the Lake across 
from married housing/but pollution 
ind other problems made it 
aecessary to discontinue this ac- 
ivity. The control of polution in an 
open body of water is, of course, a 
problem, and I do question the 
advisability of swimming in areas 
which are not properly supervised. 
This present not only a problem in 
protecting our students, but can also 
become a liability problem for the 

)■ Dr. Bienvenu: 
With the State Fair game not so 
»r off in the near future, I was 
Vondering what ever happened to 
Ihe traditional dish of baked crow 
lerved to the losing school'd 
President and SGA President? I 
bow Dr. Kilpatrick ate more than

I frankly do not know what 
appened to he traditional dish of

Perhaps the crow has been placed

The first mock election on the 
Northwestern campus in eight years 
will be held tomorrow, Student 
Government Association Director 
of Student Rights Julie Parker 
announced late last week. 

Students will have the op- 
portunity to cast their ballot for the 
governor's race, and will have seven 
choices. On the ballot will be James 
Fitzmorris, Paul Hardy, E.L. 
"Bubba" Henry, Louis Lambert, 
Edgar Mouton, Greg Nelson, and 
David Treen. 

Parker said SGA Commisioner of 
Elections Rick Dubois would be 
assisting her with the election. 
Ballot boxes and paper slips will be 
used instead of the usual voting 
machines because of the State Fair 
Court elections, said Parker. 

Students can vote from 8 a.m. to 
7 p.m. in front of the Student Union 
Ballroom, according to Dubois and 
Parker. State Fair Court elections 
are also tomorrow. 

The last mock election on the 
NSU campus, as far as Current 
Sauce records indicate, was held in 
October of 1971. Students voted on 
candidates for four of the top state 
government posts, including 
governor, lieutenant governor, 
attorney general, and superin- 
tendent of education. 

That year, NSU students voted 
for Edwin Edwards for governor by 
a 195-148 margin over J. Bennett 
Johnston. Seventeen other can- 
didates divided 421 votes, as 764 
students cast their ballots. Other 
winners in the 1971 mock election 
were Jamar Adcock for It. 
governor, George Oubre for at- 
torney general, and William Dodd 
for superintendent of education. 

Two of this year's gubernatorial 
candidates were also on the mock 
election ballot in 1971. David Treen 

finished fourth in the mock 
governor's election at NSU, polling 
64 votes. James Fitzmorris was a 
distant sixth in the It. governor's 
race, getting only 27 votes. Fitz- 
morris surprised NSU voters by 
winning the post, while Treen 
grabbed 42 percent of the votes cast 
in the open election against Ed- 

William Guste, who ran second at 
NSU, was elected attorney general, 
while Louis Michot won the 
superintendent of education job, 
although he was a distant second 
(307-195) in the 1971 campus mock 

If the SauceSurvey run at the 
beginning of the semester is any 
indication, Treen may walk away 
with the mock election, just as he 
has done with most of the statewide 
polls and the LSU mock election. 
Treen polled 46 percent in the 
SauceSurvey, and grabbed 49 
percent of the vote on the LSU 

The SauceSurvey, which ran in 
the August 28 Sauce, showed Hardy 
with 23 percent, Henry and Mouton 
with eight percent, and Fitzmorris 
with five percent. Lambert had no 
support from those polled bv

Folk festival slated next summer 

The first multi-cultural folk 
festival ever held in Natchitoches 
has been scheduled for June 28-29 
of 1980 by the Louisiana Folklife 
Center at Northwestern . 

The Natchitoches Folk Festival, 
which will be presented at Prather 
Coliseum on the NSU campus, is 
being produced as a cooperative 
venture of Northwestern and the 
Natchitoches community. 

Dr. Donald Hatley, NSU 
professor and director of the 
Louisiana Folklife Center, is 
coordinating the two-day festival, 
which he said represents a "serious 
attempt to present materials of the 
many cultures that have made this 
region so historically rich." 

The Center's director said 
financial support for the festival is 
being provided by the Natinnan

Coliseum next June, (staff photo by Jerry Jones). 

Endowment for the Arts, local 
businesses, lending isntitutions and 
individuals throughout the area. 

"Our financial commitments to 
produce this first festival are now in 
excess of $18,000," said Hatley, 
"but more than $25,000 will be 
needed to do adequate field work to 
locate and pay participants, to 
purchase materials and equipment 
and for other festival costs. 

The Natchitoches Folk Festival 
will feature a wide variety of ac- 
tivities, including music and dance, 
arts and crafts and traditional 
foods. An important industry will 
be focused upon at the festival each 
year to show how the industry has 
influenced the lives of the people of 
this area. 

Hatley stated that the Louisiana 
Folklife Center has acquired the 
services of University of Texas 
folklore professor Dr. Archie Green 
as a consultant to work closely with 
the steering committee planning the

nation's leading lobbyists for

Pictures of the fourteen nominees 
are in the Lifestyle section of this 
issue of the Sauce. 

Kelly Crowell, NSU's 1979 State 
Fair chairman, said each of the 

coeds jeceived at least four 
nominations from campus dorms 
and organizations. 

Crowell also cleared up a major 
misconception about voting 
procedures for the State Fair Court. 
She said students may vote for any 
number of the fourteen nominees up 
to the limit of nine. 

"If someone just wants to vote 
for three of the nominees, they can 
do that," she explained. "But they 
can't vote for more than nine, and 
we certainly hope everyone will vote 
for the full nine." 

Meanwhile, athletic officials 
announed that tickets for the State 
Fair Classic went on sale yesterday 
at the ticket window of the new 
NSU fieldhouse. 

Students may purchase tickets for 
the game at a special discount rate 
of $2 each with the presentation of 
ID cards. 

NSU athletic director and head 
football coach A.L. Williams said 
that the ticket windows in the field 
house would open at 8 a.m. Monday 
morning and that tickets would be 
on sale from 8 a.m. until4:30 p.m. 
daily for the Oct. 20 contest in 
Shreveport's 52,000-seat State Fair 

"We are looking for a very large 
ticket sale," Williams said. "This 
game is always a tremendously 
popular one for our fans and 
students, so I am sure that good 
tickets will only be available for a 
short time." 

Non-student tickets are $6 for 
reserved seats and $7 for box seats 
while they last.

Shreveport police to visit NSU, 
to present program for women 

Two membeis of the Shreveport 
Police Academy will present a rape 
awareness program for women Oct. 
17 in John S. Kyser Hall 
Auditorium on the NSU campus. 

Open to the public without 
charge, the program begins at 7 
p.m. It is being sponsored jointly by 
Northwestern's University Police 
Department and Office of Student 
Services. NSU police officer Frankie 
Outright is coordinating the 

Presenting the program at 
Northwestern will be Lt. Buddy 
Smith and Capt. Kit Wren, 
Shreveport Police Academy per- 
sonnel who have been conducting 
rape awareness programs for 
several years throughout North 

"Rapes and sex crimes against 
women are increasing at a dramatic 
rate, not only in this area but 
nationwide," said Smith, who has 
presented similar programs for eight 

"The reason rapes and sex crimes 
against women are on the increase is 
because the Supreme Court has seen 
fit to do away with the death penalty 
in rape convictions," he said. "The 
Supreme C^urt has also done away 
with strenuous penalties in cases 
involving sex crimes against 

Smith stated that in Shreveport 
alone, there were 44 "founded" 
cases of rape from January through 
August. "We don't have figures for 
September as yet, but we know they 
are going to be higher than any past 
year," he explained. "Since 
January, we have had more 
reported cases of rape than any year 
in the past." 

The program developed by Smith 

and Wren begins with a film entitled 
"Nobody's Victim," which focuses 
on preventive measures women can 
turn to when attacks occur. 

"College campuses fall into a 
high-risk category for attacks," said 
Smith. "But an area can be con- 
sidered high-risk whenever you have 
a large group of women present. 
Hospitals, telephone companies and 
office buildings also fall into this 

Smith said the Shreveport Police 
Academy's rape awareness program 
has become the agency's most 
requested program. He said. "Over 
the past two years, we have been 
presenting this program on the 
average of once every three working 
days. Next week, we are booked to 
present it six times." 

"We have been seeing rapes and 
sex crimes against women increase 
each year, and we have become 
advocates of 'scream and 'fight- 
fight' prevention," said Smith. 
"Most people say this is wrong, 
fearing that harm will come to the 
victim, but we are of the belief that 
the victim needs to do something to 
draw attention to herself." 

Important in the film presen- 
tation, said Smith, are actual 
physical ways that women can break 
holds by their assailants. 

"In addition to what is brought 
out in the film, we stress in our talk 
the importance of our interrogation 
if an actual rape occurs," said 
Smith. "This is where most cases 

Degrees to be reviewed 
by League of Nursing 

Northwestern's baccalaureate and 
master's degree programs in nursing 
will be reviewed Oct. 9-12 by an 
evaluation team representing the 
National League of Nursing. 

The three-member team of 
nursing educators will examine 
NSU's academic classes and clinical 
laboratory experiences and will 
review the self-study report 
prepared by NSU's nursing faculty. 

Dr. Peggy Ledbetter, dean of the 
College of Nursing at Northwestern, 
said periodic evaluation by 
visitation teams is one of the 
national requirements for con- 
tinuing and initial National League 
of Nursing accreditation.

Mozart theme presented 
in Little Theatre concert 

"Mostly Mozart" will be the 
theme of a unique concert the 
Department of Music at Nor- 
thwestern will present Oct. 8 at 8 
p.m. in the NSU Little Theatre. 

Conducted by Dr. John Taylor, 
director of choral activities at NSU, 
the concert's program will consist 
mostly of the works by Austrian 
composer of the classical period, 
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

The famous composer's "String 
Quartet No. 13, K. 157" will open 
the concert, as performed by Dr. 
• Robert Price and Claire Nixon on 
violin, Nancy Price on viola and 
Verna Murphy on cello. 

The Northwestern Chamber 
Choir will present three motets by 
Mozart— "Ave Verum Corpus," 
:|: "Laudate Dominum" and "Dixit 
Dominus." The latter two selections 
are from Mozart's "Solemn 
% Vespers, K. 339" and will feature 
|; Janee Cluck as soprano soloist. 


The chorus will also perform 
| Franz Joseph Haydn's "Missa 

Brevis St. Joannis de Deo," a brief 
|: mass written for the Brothers of 

Charity in Eisenstadt, Austria. 

Taylor was bass soloist this summer 

for the Classical Music Seminar in 

Eisenstadt and visited the church 
where the mass had its premiere 

Children of all ages will enjoy the 
concert's "Concerto Grosso in G 
Major," featuring Natchitoches- 
Central High School sophomore 
Lisa Jones on violin. This 15-year 
old violinist performs in both the 
Natchitoches-NSU and Rapides 
Symphony Orchestras. 

This summer Lisa participated in 
the Governor's Program at Mc- 
Neese State University and the 
concerto was written for the 
composition class that she par- 
ticipated in. 

Closing the October concert will 
be a fully-staged production of 
Mozart's one-act opera, Bastien and 
Bastienna." The comic opera to be 
performed in English, was written 
and produced when Mozart was 
only 12 years old. The principal 
parts will be sung by Dee 
Hawthorne, soprano, a graduate 
student from Alexandria; Michael 
Strange, tenor, sophomore from 
Shreveport, and Taylor, bass. 

Janis Moore and Brends Rudd 
will accompany the concert. 
"Mostly Mozart" is open to the 
public and admission is free.

iNorthwestein has begun a new 
and unique five-year water safety 
program which is designed to "d-

NSU Elementary Laboratory 

Dr. Allen R. Bonnette, professor 
of physical education and director 
of water safety instruction at North- 
western, developed the five-year 
"drown-proofing" program for 
teaching swimming and safety skills 
to small children. 

"At tne end of their fifth year in 
this program," said Bonnette, "we 
want to see these children leave our 
elementary laboratory school with 
the swimming and safety skills 
necessary to take care of themselves 
and other people in the water."

Bonnette stated. "When a kin- 
dergarten child has finished the first 
year of our program, we want the 
child's swimming skills to be at the 
level of a beginning swimmer. 
Parents don't always understand 
that this can be a very tough assig- 
nment, because there are 20 
beginner skills that must be achieved 
in the first year." 

He added, "The second year in 
the program, we want the child to 
have reached the status of advanced 
beginner and intermediate by the 
end of the third year. The fourth 
year is devoted to swimmer skills. 
What all of this leads to is the fifth 
year when the children are ready for 
basic rescue and water safety study 
which was formerly called junior 
life saving." 

"We will oe keeping the kin- 
dergarten and first-grade sections

pupil ratio," said Bonnette, who 
added that second and third-grade 
children will be combined and 
fourth and fifth grades will be 
integrated, because swimming skills 
are higher.

NSU Placement Office offers 
something for everyone 

the con- 
where he 
y Jones). 

Curtis Wester has been at Nor- 
thwestern since Aug., 1970, as a 
student, instructor of aviation 
science, and since July, 1978, 
director of placement. When given 
the new position, Wester was rather 
shocked at his promotion. "It was 
really on-the-job-training for me. I 
had no previous experience in 
placement," Wester said, "but I 
think I was given the job because the 
administration knows I'll do my 
best to do a good job, no matter the 

Wester decided to approach the 
job with curiosity and zeal. He 
contiuned, "When I started, I knew 
no more about the office than 
students did, so I approached it 
from that standpoint. I decided I 
needed to answer all of my own 
questions before I could answer 
student questions. The result was 
the NSU Placement handbook, 
which I wrote. We give a copy of 
the handbook to all students that 
request it." 

Wester's 14-page handbook is a 
conglomeration of services offered 
by the office, as well as the overall 
functions of the placement office. 

Wester determined the five basic 
functions of the office to be: 

1 . To compile a set of confidential 
papers on each registrant and make 
this file available to prospective 
employers. Students should realize 
that they may begin this file at any 

2. To provide adequate physical 
facilities for personal interviews 
with recruiters visiting the NSU 
campus and disseminate this in- 
formation to all interested students. 

3. To attempt to provide in- 
formation regarding part-time

4. To assist students in the 
preparation of resumes, cover 
letters, and preparation for personal 

5. To maintain files of materials 
relating to career fields and 
recruiting materials for specific 
organizations, and to make this 
information available to any in- 
terested student. 

After establishing these functions 
as goals for the placement office, 
Wester felt prepared to deal with 
droves of students looking for help 
in locating and getting jobs. Again, 
he was shocked, "The students have 
never come in the numbers I 
thought they would. I'm really not 
sure why more students don't take 
advantage of this service." 

One basic problem, according to 
Wester, is that so few students know 
of the service. The only way Wester 
has to contact students is using roles 
of graduating seniors supplied to 
him by the individual colleges. Even 
this is not very effective as Wester 
says, "We'll see maybe 40 percent 
of the graduating seniors, and that 
could be a liberal figure. 

"What's strange is they wait so 
late to get started. We offer many 
different services and yet I see very 
few first semester seniors, and 
almost no underclassmen. If the 
student wait until his last semester in 
school, he's almost too late. Three 
and a half months is not much time 
to search the job market for a well- 
paying, satisfying job. We can help 
them find what they are looking for 
if they come in early in their college 
years and establish a file with us. 
That would make it so much easier 

for them and us." 

When asked exactly what services 
his office offered Wester replied, 
"The biggest fallacy is that we are 
an employment agency. We are not. 
We are here to guide the student 
and give direction as to where the 
potential jobs are. We don't have a 
drawer of jobs here waiting for 
someone to take them. However, 
we can put the student in touch with 
potential employers and teach him 
the best way to sell himself to an 
employer. We can help with 
resumes, cover letter, and even set 
up personal interviews for the in- 
dividual student." 

As an example of the available 
services, Wester has compiled a list 
of the 50 most asked questions by 
interviewers. He also has different 
styles of resumes, letters, and such 
to give the student an idea of how to 
prepare his own personal dossier. 

Wester continued, "We not only 
offer the student information about 
specific organizations and the jobs 
they have available, but also in- 
formation about the general career 
fields if the students is undecided on 
what his chosen profession will be. 
At this time, we have casettes 
available to students on various 
career fields, specific jobs, and even 
what to except on interviews. In the 
near future, we hope to have audio- 
visual aids available to help 

"I think the students should 
know that this service is available to 
all students and alumni as well. We 
keep graduate files open for five 
years and if they remain active, they 
stay open longer. For the un- 
dergraduate, we can help him locate 
summer work, but he must come by

"Let me give an example. Arkla 
Gas comes to Northwestern every 
year. They want to talk to 
graduating seniors, first semester 
seniors, and underclassmen. They 
are looking for graduates to go to 
work now, future graduates to keep 
in mind, and underclassmen for 
summer employment. There are 
many others like them." 

When asked what the hottest 
employment fields are today, 
Wester answered, "Some fields are 
very hot right now. In particular, 
engineering and computer science 
are booming fields. Also, positions 
in food services and hotel 
management are numerous. 
Another top field, at this time, 
would be health-field ad- 

"One field that's on the increase 
is education. According to the 

Bureau of Labor Statistics, we could 
be suffering from a severe teacher 
shortage by 1985. That's only five 
years away. Did you know that in 
the peak years, 1971-72, there were 
over 190,000 graduates in 
education, while last year there were 
only 32,000? That large difference 
could make education one of the up- 
and-coming fields for students to 

Wester closed by saying, "I wish 
students would just take 30 minutes 
and come by and see what we have 
to offer. They just might find out 
something they didn't know. It's 
important for the students to think 
ahead, because time could be 
money. We want to help and we can 
help, but we need to know what the 
individual wants. If they just take 
the time, I think they'll find that it's 
worth it." 

Hot Sauce 

(continued from page 1) 


Natchitoches spends an average of 
$1,000 per year in the community. 
Of course, Northwestern also 
provides employment of over 600 
individuals living in the area, amd 
the major part of their income is 
spent in the City. I don't believe any 
logically thinking individual doubts 
for one moment the importance of 
NSU to the economic stability of the 
Natchitoches area. We must also 
consider, however, the importance 
of contributions made by Nat- 
chitoches as far as providing a 
desirable home for students who 
attend the University. 


Focus On Opinions 

Last week, a partially burned Current Sauce was 
shoved through the contributors' slot at the Sauce 
office, an act hardly worth mention. Attached to the 
paper was a message which more or less implied that 
Sauce staff members perform "unnatural" sexual acts. 

As you can imagine, the incident was met with mixed 
emotions in the office. Some of the staffers were really 
upset about it while others thought it was rather 
humorous. I guess I was one of those in the middle. In 
one way, it could be considered funny, but I was quite 
saddened by it. 

Obviously, this person had a gripe. There was 
something in that Sauce that he (or she) didn't par- 
ticularly like. The problem, though, is that this person 
didn't have the intelligence, maturity, or gump to air his 
gripe in an adult fashion. 

Students really don't realize what goes into putting a 
paper together. I know I didn't. I worked on the 
yearbook staff for three years, and now I know that I 
had it easy, in comparison. The pace in newspaper work 
is unbelievably fast. It requires a great deal of time and 
effort and, in effect, is a full-time job (although the pay 
is not that great). 

Of course, all of us on the staff hold two full-time 
jobs. Our other job and our most important job is being 
full-time students. And that's what we are-students. 
We are students who are trying to inform you, entertain 
you, and make you ponder problems and situations on 

However, we are not stupid enough to believe that 
you, the students and faculty of NSU, are going to agree 
with everything we say. It would be rather pointless to 
state an opinion if everyone agreed on everything. This 
is awfully cliche, but that's why they have horse races, 

because of difference of opinion. The thing is, though, 
in horse racing, if you don't like a horse you don't kill 
him, you just make another choice and bet against the 
one you don't like. That's fair enough, and everyone 
then knows how you stand. 

That might be a terrible analogy, but what I'm trying 
to say is that we don't care if you have an opinion that is 
different than ours. That is your right and that's what 
this country is based on. We'll defend to the end that 

What we do care about is how you state your opinion. 
The warped logic behind an incident like this one has to 
be questioned. In his own weird way this person stated 
his opinion, but the way he did it could be extremely 
dangerous. When this person stooped to such a bizarre 
act, he instantly lost credibility and could not be taken 
seriously, no matter how legitimate his gripe. Had this 
person called us, or written us, or even dropped by the 
office, we would have listened, and he would have had 
the opportunity to state his opinion like an adult. 

Now I'm sure (or at least I hope) this guy is in the 
minority, and perhaps nothing should have been said 
about the incident, but it gives me the opportunity to 
give you my opinion. But how about you? It's almost 
mid-term and we have received only a handful of letters 
from you, the students. Surely you have an opinion or 
insight that's different from ours. How about letting us 
know. LSU's Daily Reveille publishes 10 or 15 letters 
every day; we haven't gotten that many all semester. 
Come on, we are not a bunch of uncaring radicals. We 
will listen. All you have to do is drop us a line or two, 
give us your name, and be proud of your opinion. Wd're 
proud of ours!

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Sounds good 

It is hard not to see, when con- 
sidering the NSU Demon Band, that 
good things come in small packages. 

Before I go any farther, I'll tell 
you right out front I have very little 
knowledge in the areas of music, 
marching, flags, and rifles, or 
twirling. short, I don't know a 
whole lot about anything having to 
do with a collegiate band. But I 
don't think it takes an expert to see 
the changes in the Demon Band are 

As a football fan, I've seen my 
fair share of bands-all kinds, all 
sizes, and ranging in ability from 
talented to hilarious. Usually, I 
don't pay a whole lot of attention to 
the halftime shows, bur every now 
and then, something catches my 
attention and I sit and watch. 
' To be perfectly frank, the first 
thing which caught my eye during 
the halftime shows in turpin 
Stadium this fall was the size of the 
band-actually, the lack of it. There 
are not too many NSU bandsmen 
left. There were 88, at last count. 
That includes everyone in uniform, 
I assume. 

At any rate, they didn't look like 
much to my untrained eye. That just 
shows you how untrained my eye is, 
because the band put o excellent 
performances. The quality of the 
sound and the showmanship of the 
band, marching-wise, really im- 
pressed me and those around 
me... some of the usually staid 
members of the working sports 

press actually applauded at the 
conclusion of the NLU halftime 

Sure, there are not many 
members left in this year's band, but 
that in itself should tell us 
something. We have a new band 
director, Dr.TCen Caldwell, who has 
indicated through his actions two 
things. One, he has a deep com- 
mitment towards giving NSU a 
quality marching band. Two, he 
believes that to have an excellent 
band, you must first have excellent 

He has driven his band hard. 
TFIPy have practiced long hours 
under his watchful eye, and from 
what I hear he is not satified with 
second-best. If it doesn't get done 
right, it gets done over until it is 
done right. 

The folks who have weathered the 
change from last year's band to this 
year's edition must be dedicated, 
talented individuals who are willing 
to go the extra mile so they might be 
a better band. They are the cream 
of the crop, and even though they 
are but a relative handful compared 
to some bands, they represented 
NSU as well as if not better than 
most bands have. 
They are a hardy bunch, those 88. 
And along with the leadership of 
Dr. Caldwell they promise to form 
the foundaton for what will surely 
be a band that will make us all 

Undecided ahead 

I hate to be redundant, but since 
we only have statewide elections 
every four years, here comes 
another column on politics... and 
anything else that comes to mind. 

Since Friday (this is being written 
on Sunday night) I've seen two more 
polls on the gubernatorial race, and 
they proved one thing... if we voted 
for governor today, we would elect 
Undecided by a large margin. 

The two polls, if memory serves 
me, both gave Republican Dave 
Treen the front-runner's spot... but 
other candidates were gaining 
ground. In a random telephone 
survey in Shreveport conducted by 
the Shreveport Times over half 
those responding said they were not 
sure exactly whom they would vote 
for on' Oct. 27. Treen had about a 
12 percent edge over a bundle of 
three other candidates, while Louis 
Lambert and Edgar Mouton have a 
■jpng way to go in the Shreveport 
area in a short time, if the survey is 
reasonably accurate. 
£ On the other side of the coin, a 
Statewide poll commisioned by the 
^Louisiana Alliance, a group that 
Sgarly on endorsed Bubba Henry, 
lowed Treen with a sudden 1 1 
percent drop. 

The poll showed a tight bunch of 
ive candidates-Paul Hardy, Jimmy 
Fitzmorris, Henry, Lambert, and 
louton, in order-just behind 
I'reen, with- only three percent 
^between Treen and Hardy. Once 
again, the big vote getter was 

' But, as far as excitment in the 
Apolitical arena, last week must been 

"the lull before the storm," to 
jjguote Alexandria Town Talk 
Ljolumnist John LaPlante. It seems 
;1is if the folks behind the scenes are 
Charting their candidate, master 

plans for these final weeks before 

Election Day. 

Mouton's men, realizing that he 

has a long way to go and little time 

to get there, have started to fire 
Jiway at all of the other hopefuls, in 

an attempt to boost Edgar into the 

thick of things. His "Are you tired 
of all the bull?" spots have gone 
over well. ..the only problem is folks 
are congratulating the other can- 
didates for them also, apparently 
confused as to whom the com- 
mercials are for the in the first 

Lambert stirred up the most fire 
with his attacks on Treen's 
Congressional voting record. Aided 
and abbetted by democratic Party 
officals, he says Treen voted against 
the poor, the elderly and the 
working man during his years in 

Treen replied by saying the 
allegations are misleading, 
desperation tactics, but if the 
Alliance poll is right, they have 
damaged Treen's hold on one of the 
run off spots. 

Henry premiered his impressive 
30 minute television documentary 
"Against All Odds" and picked up, 
along with Hardy and Treen, an 
acceptable for office label from the 

Hardy's campaaign office 
discovery of a bugging device 
produced nothing new, as results 
from investigations will not be 
available for a while yet. 

Fitzmorris started a series of new 
TV spots defending his big business 
connections, the same ones blasted 
by Lambert and Hardy earlier in the 

But still, no one candidates has 
been able to edge in on Undecided. 
Apparently, the next 18 days will 
decided who gets those votes, and 
who goes on into the December 

We will get a clue as to how NSU 
feels about the race tomorrow, 
when the SGA holds a mock 
election in conjunction with the 
State Fair Court voting. The last 
time we had a mock election, Edwin 
Edwards won it. 1971. We all 
know there he went from there, so 
maybe NSU pick two winners in a 
row. At any rate, don't forget to 
cast your vote tomorrow. 

Lange lectures 


% Kelly Lange, NBC news an-

thirds of the speakers are directly 
involved with journalism and we 
hope that all NSU students will

As clearly as I can see it, the letter 
to the Hot Sauce about the band is 
no more than an immature attempt 
at an insult. The band is not en- 
thusiastic enough? I strongly 
disagree. How many students at 
NSU work 4-6 p.m. Monday, 
Wednesday, and Friday, plus 6-11 
p.m. on Saturday nights at football 
games for one hour of credit? (That 
amount of time does not even in- 
clude individual practice time!) It 
actually takes twice as much 
dedication as enthusiasm to par- 
ticipate in such an organization. 

Most people have only good 
things to say about our band. Those 
few who see fit to belittle our 
organization are usually those who 
"don't have time to get involved," 
and we regard their comments with 
the same attitude. The main thing 
wrong with that person's attitude is 
their apparent superiority to our 
organization. The ultmate loss will 
be theirs, however, for the NSU 
band will never have a need for that 
type student. The 88 members of the 
band send our sympathy to those 
few of you who feel this way, and 
remind you that we may be a small 
band, but we're a damn proud one!

You say, Who? I say, yes, Jim- 
Bob Dork, a man for Louisiana, a 
man for all seasons. 

Jim-Bob, from his meager, better 
yet, foul up-bringing as a child, to a 
successful lawyer in Toadsuck, 
Arkansas, Jim-Bob has been 
preparing for his destiny, which is to 
govern Louisiana. 

Jim-Bob, along with his lovely 
wife, Babs Freeforall, have fought 
and overcome such predjucdice that 
few have ever witnessed or ex- 

Did you know that in one 
humiliating incident, that Jim- Bob 
was incarcerated in the Animal 
Shelter for appearing in public 

on this page. 

On behalf of the Athletic 
Department, I would like to express 
my appreciation to the students for 
their enthusiasm, spirit, and support 
during our Homecoming game with 
Northeast. As usual, it was out- 
standing and many of the old grads 
told me how impressed they were 
with the team and the fans. Not 
only did you show outstanding spirit 
but you showed a lot of class with it 
which confirms my feeling that we 
can show the greatest spirit and still 
do it in a manner that parents and 
alumni can be proud. This is the 
way it happened last weekend. It 
certainly helped us to be a better 
football team, and as the Nor- 
thwestern football team. Please 
continue this outstanding spirit for 
thej^est of the season. This was our 
largest crowd ever and I appreciate 
your helping to make it a great 
Homecoming weekend.

without a mask on? It was only 
through Babs' ingenious efforts was 
he ever releases. 

While inside the Shelter, did you 
know that Jim-Bob narrowly 
escaped having been put into the 
decompression chamber, or the 
doggie dachau, as Jim-Bob so 
lightly calls it. 

Yes, it was only through fate that 
a rabid, mange-infested painted- 
tailed gibbon was mistaken for Jim- 
Bob, and so our man lived yet 
another day. 

Since that fateful day in the 
shelter, Jim-Bob and Babs have 
sworn to fight for justice for all 
oppressed creatures. 

Many times have I heard Jim-Bob 
repeat his motto, which he really 
lives by: Do unto others, before they 

activites thay have planned for the 
future look really good. 

I have been to all of the movies 
thus far, and I must say I as really 
pleased with what has been shown, 
and what is going to be shown in the 

As for the Howdy Dance, it was 
great. Now I hear they're planning 
a gong show and a casino party for 
the near future. 

I don't know much abot the 
concerts yet, but I attended the 
LeRoux concert last Christmas 
Festival and they were fantastic. In 
last week's Sauce there were 
mentions of Styx, ZZ Top, and 

do unto you. I am impressed. 

Have you heard Jim-Bob's stan(l 
on the educational situation that 
faces our state? Only pure genius 
could have conceived a concept as 
brilliant as that. Tell me what kind 
of mind could have thought up the 
idea of only having good-looking 
teachers in our schools, and after- 
hours therapy classes conducted by 
Jim-Bob himself for the female 

Yes, I want to join with KNWD— 
FM, NSU's campus radio, and 
endorse Jim-Bob Dork as the next 
governor of the great state of 

Not Treen, not Henry, not 
Mouton, or Lambert, or Hardy, or 
Fitzmorris, but Jim-Bob Dork, a 
man for our times. 

Foghat. Can we really afford these 
groups? Would we even have 
enough room for these big groups? 
I have seen Sytx before and we 
would not have any place around 
here to hold their equipment. I 
mean if we get Styx, why not go fot 
Electric Light Orchestra or even the 
Bee Gees. And furthermore, I don't 
believe anyone was forced to sit 
through the LeRoux concert. (Were 
you really tied to your seat? And 
was the Midnight Special really a 
bar when LeRoux played there?) 

Thanks again SUGB, and keep up 
the good work!

State of the 

There comes a time every 
semester when the question 
of bigger and better con- 
certs comes up. 

There are two basic 
problems when you talk 
about concert program- 
ming: money and facilities. 

The Concert Committee 
operates with a maxium 
semesterly budget of 
around $20,000. This in- 
cludes money allocated 
from student fees and 
money carried over from 
the gate receipts from 
previous concerts. So, as 
gaye receipts flunctuate so 
does our money. This 
possibility of sharging 
students at the door is being 
examined to see whether or 
not the added income will 
be enough to help in getting 
bigger acts. If this is the 
case and students jire still 
willing, this may happen. 

by Ron Thomas 
Union Board President 

This may sound like a 
great deal of money, but 
when you consider people 
like the Doobie Brothers for 
$35,000 and Jackson Brown 
for $40,000 it shrinks 

Also, talent is not all you 
have to pay for. You may 
pay the group $15,000 to 
preform and then have 
$2,500 sound and lighting, 
$1,000 opening act, $1,500 
agent's fee (10 percemt of 
talent cost), $500 ad- 
vertising, and $1,500 
generator rental. So your 
$15,000 concert ends up 
costing $22,000. 

The generator rental just 
mentioned brings me to 
another points: our facility. 

Prather Coliseum is not 
presently electrically 
equipped to handle to a 
jualor concert. We have 
had to rent generators 

many times in the past tc 
handle the extra load. 

Also, groups are 
demanding bigger staging 
areas. A few years ago our 
40' x 25' stage was plenty, 
but now groups are calling 
for stages 45' x40' and 

We are doing the best we 
can to alleviate these 
problems so we can have 
bigger concerts. Hopefully 
both the financial abd 
facility problems can be 
dealt with so we can present 
bigger and better concerts. 

Coming this week: The 
Gong-Show— Wednesday, 
October 10, 7:00 PM in the 
Student Union Ballroom; 
"The Good, The Bad, and 
The Ugly"-Thursday and 
Friday, October 11 and 12

Hildebrand, Demons healthy and eager \WQadWoMng\ 


by Roger Rolon 
Asst. Sports Kditor 


| Northwestern's head basketball coach 
gfynes Hildebrand says he is "feeling 
Stronger every day" as he prepares to 
fppen his 15th season as the head coach of 
She Demons. 

f Hildebrand, NSU's second-winningest 
&oach of all time (186-179), recently had 
5|js gall bladder removed in an operation 
ut "hasn't had any problems since then" 
nd his "strength is coming back." 
The Demons will welcome back some 
ore strength to assist this year's four 
Returning starters in junior center 
{Frederick Piper and sophomore Earnest 

Piper, a 6-foot-8 postman was awesome 
jn the rebounding department during his 
sophomore season in 1977-78 as he pulled 
down 12.4 per game-ranking him among 
j the nations top 15. He also scored 12.4 
I points per game, but due to serious in- 
; juries he suffered in an automobile ac- 
cident, he was forced to miss all of last 
. season's action. The same was true for 
backup center Reliford, a 6-foot-7 
sophomore who played extensively during 
• his freshman season before breaking his 
■j hand in practice last season. 

The returning starters are led by 6-foot- 
5 junior forward Jim Hoops and 6-foot-6 
■ senior postman Guy Charles. Hoops was 
a well-rounded player accounting for 13.0 
n^vpoinis. (second on the squad) 5.5 
^^Kjgebounds, and 2.0 assists per outing as a 
jKsophomore. Charles, perhaps the most 
Consistent player of last year, led the 
Demons in rebounding (6.3 average), field 
goal percentage (.524), and free throw 
ercentage (.800) while tossing in 11.2 
oints per game. 

"Guy improved a great deal during the 
ason last year," Hildebrand said. "He 
jyas forced to play inside against bigger 
eoplc much of the time and did a good 

When asked about the past per- 
rmances of Hoops, the Demon boss 
plied: "Jim is probably the most fully 
evoted player I've ever coached. He 
ever stops hustling." 
The other returnees are 6-5 senior 
Andre Bailey and six-foot junior guard 
Mike Brey. Bailey scored 8.7 points and 
grabbed 6.2 rebounds per contest. Brey 
hit on 7.6 points while handing out over 
six assists per court appearance. 
Hildebrand expects this year's team to 
: Ibe very much improved over last year. 
Besides Piper and Reliford, he anticipated 
"big things" from 6-foot-4 sophomore 
Jerry Lynch. The talented guard from 

per wdlt^ eesv '" c saw act ' on m a " 26 games last 
I h a'^ car wm ' e contributing 2.1 points in a 
nave i 'backup role. Another addition to the 
group *Demon's depth at guard is junior Mike 
reenc. The six-footer from Pleasant Hill 
only flp an excellent ball-handler, a skill which 


five an 
m. uni 


is becoming more and more important in 
college basketball today. 

Newcomers are also expected to 
contribute. Two of the more talented high 
school players in the state were signed by 
the Demons. Six-foot-seven postman 
Garry Moore of Pickering and 6-foot-3 
guard Harry Francis of St. Martinville 
were praised as "having good fun- 
damentals" and Hildebrand doesn't 
expect any problems in improving them 
even more for the future. 

The Demons' 14-man roster was also 
blessed with some fine roundballers from 
area junior colleges: Bill Boehme (6-6, Jr. 
Huntsville Ala., Chatahoochee Valley Jr. 
College), Rick Goleman (6-8, Jr. 
Longview, Tx., Angelina Jr. College), 
Chris Hill (6-5, So. Minden, Murray St.), ■ 
Donnie Goodson (5-11, Jr. Baton Rouge, 
Walker Jr. College). All are expected to 
be a plus for the Demons. 

The Demons hope to improve on last 
year's 7-19 record. Their major problem 
was their play on the road as they went 2- 
13 away from friendly Prather Coliseum. 
More specifically, the Demons were 
outrebounded by some 35 rebounds last 
season. This was because in most cases the 
Demons were outsized under the boards. 
This shouldn't be the case this coming 
season. "With both Fred and Earnie 
back, we should again be strong inside," 
Hildebrand said. "We will have ex- 
perienced people on the floor, and we 
won't be as badly outsized as we were last 

The Demons also got off to a bad start 
last year as they dropped their first eight 
contests. Their longest winning streak was 
only three games but in 14 of their 19 
defeats, the losing margin was 10 points 
or less. A few more rebounds might have 
changed many outcomes. 

NSU's practice officially begins next 
Monday. The early goal will be to prepare 
for a scrimage with the Greece National 
Team (Nov. 7) which is ranked among the 
top five amatuer teams in the world. 

The 26-game regular season tips-off 
November 30 as the Demons travel to 
Austin, Tx., to play the University of 
Texas (yes, that's right, the Longhorns). 
The Demons then play at Southwestern 
Louisiana (Dec. 3), return home for three 
games (Dec. 5,8, 10.) against state rivals 
before departing north to meet Ohio 
powers Bowling Green and Ohio State. 

This year's schedule is no pushover by 
any means, (12 home games, 14 road) but 
Hildebrand remains optimistic. "We 
should compete very well with the teams 
on our schedule. We are going to have 
problems against some but they should 
also have problems with us. The kids have 
had a good attitude in preseason and they 
will be ready for the opener at Texas."

Home sweet home 

V\hen the Northwestern Demons take the field 
against Southeastern Saturday night, they will not only 
be trying for their third win of the season, but they'll be 
going after a rare road victory. 

Traditionally, (well at least over the past five 
seasons), the NSU squad hasn't had too much luck on 
the road. One of last season's five wins, however, was 
on the road, the Demons taking the measure of Stephen 
F. Austin by a 21-14 count at Nacogdoches, Tex. 

The friendly confines of Turpin Stadium definitely 
are a plus for the Demons. Last season, NSU went 4-1 at 
home, the only loss coming at the hands of South- 
western La. on a last second field goal by John Roveto. 
That mark made it three seasons in succession that the 
Demons have gone 4-1 on the Astroturf . 

Since the facility was constructed four years ago, the 
Demons have gone 14-3 on the synthetic surface, 
counting the two wins at home thus far this year. While 
the Demons have been impressive at home, their road 
record has been paltry. Dating back to the 1974 season, 
the Demons have a 5-27 slate in away contests. 

The Demons will have plenty of lime to try and 
improve on their road slate. The next five games are on 
the road, the only one close to home being the annual 
State Fair game, in w hich NSU will be the host team this 
year. The only problem is thai State Fair Stadium 
doesn't have Astroturf. 

Turpin Stadium also means larger crowds for the 
Demons to play in front of. NSU has now played before 
30,684 fans in three games, an average of 10,228 fans 
per contest. At home, though, the average is 12,098 per 

The 12,989 who came out to see NSU defeat Nor- 
theast at Homecoming represented the largest crowd 
ever at home for a Demon football game. The previous 
largest crowd was 12,400, set last season against Mc- 
Neese at Homecoming. 

In addition, since Turpin Stadium was completed 
prior to the start of the 1977 season, the Demons have 
made 12 home appearances and averaged just under 
10,000 onlookers per game. Since the stadium's 
completion, there have been six crowds of 10.0(H) fans 
or more. 

Griffith "center" of attention 

The Demon victory over Northeast certainly was 
influenced by the play up front by the offensive line. 
One man who didn't really gel that much credit for his 
contributions was center Warren Griffith, but it turns 
out he may have deserved as much or more credit than 
anyone else. 

According to NSU offensive line coach Joe Raymond 
Peace, Griffith's performance should not have gone 

"Warren played an outstanding game, as did the rest 
of the offensive line," Peace stated. "He's been playing 
very well since the start of the season, but his effort 
against NLU was just outstanding." 

According lo head coach A.L. Williams, the credit 
for the Homecoming triumph over the Indians went to 
the offensive line. 

"Our offensive line performed just great," Williams 
stated. "And Warren Griffith probably played his best 
game ever. He consistently beat his man, and he threw 
some key blocks when we had to have a big play." 

It was because of the play of Griffith and his 
teammates on the line that NSU piled up 302 yards on 
the ground, which represented the highest rushing total 
by NSU since last season's win over Nicholls St., when 
the Demon runners totaled 443 yards. 

It's good news for Demon hopes that the 6-loot-l, 
220-pounder is only a junior. Strangely enough, he 
began his collegiate career as a defensive end. But due to 
the weakness of the center position al that time, he was 
moved to center to help shore up that position. 

Last season, he was a part-timer at the center spot. 
Both he and Chris Craighead, a sophomore from 
Farmerville, had been seeing action at center during pre- 
season practices, but Griffith was made the starter alter 
Craighead went down with an injury to his knee. His 
play thus far has been a key factor for the Demons, and 
hopefully his outstanding play will continue.

Nolen: Optimism abounds 

by Buddy Wood 
Sauce Sports Editor 

When you ask Lady 
Demon head coach Pat 
Nolen about the upcoming 
season, she glows with 
smiles of optimism as she 
prepares to enter her second 
season as Lady Demon 
mentor. When you realize 
that she lost only one starter 
from last year's squad while 
adding six very talented 
freshmen, it's easy to see 
why her expectations are so 

"I am very optimistic 
about the upcoming 
season," Nolen said. "In 
fact, I'm so optimistic that 
I'll be disappointed if we 
don't win 20 games this 

With the abundance of 
talent returning from last 
year's squad, plus the 
addition of some super new 
players, a 20-win season for 
the Lady Demons might 
just be around the corner. 
With 26 games scheduled, 
plus participation in three 
tournaments, the Lady 
Demons could play 
anywhere from 30 to 40 
games, so 20 victories is a 
very reasonable goal. 

The Lady Demons will 
play a strenuous schedule 
this season, including 
numerous toughies on the 
road. It is because of the 
difficult schedule that 
Nolen has already put her 
troops on a heavy con- 
ditioning program, which 
will definitely pay off as the 
season progresses. 

"I feel my girls still need 
some experience playing on 
the road against tough 
schools," Nolen stated. 
"We play some very good 
teams on the road this year, 
but I feel my girls will be in 
any game we play." 

Leading the returnees 
from last season's group 
that posted a 12-15 mark is 
All-American candidate 
Joan Darbonne. Darbonne, 
a junior guard and an All- 
Louisiana selection last 
season, averaged 21 points 
a game for the Lady 
Demons a year ago and is 
only a portion of the 
tremendous talent this 
season's squad will feature. 
"Joan is our leader," 
Nolen stated. "She has 
improved her defense 
greatly over last season, and 
I am expecting a tremen- 
dous season from her. She 
is simply phenomenal at 
times," Nolen added. 

Darbonne had several 
performances last year that 
were simply brilliant. She 
rammed in 38 points against 
national runner-up and 
state rival La. Tech to make 
a believer out of most 
everyone. She also is one of 
the best shooters to ever put 
on a Lady Demon uniform. 
In addition she made 72 
steals last season. 

Also returning is Marilyn 
Gates, who started for 
Nolen last year at center as 
a freshman. Gates averaged 
12 points on the year to 
finish behind only Dar- 
bonne, and was the team's 
leading rebounder with nine 
a game. 

"Marilyn is much more 
agile this season," Nolen 
commented. "She is not 
afraid to go to the basket. 
Her attitude is tremendous, 
and her talents are 

Theresa Long also 
returns from last year's 
starting quintet. Long, the 
only senior on the Lady 
Demon roster, averaged 
almost nine points a game 
and also hauled in over six 
rebounds per contest. Her 
presence in the lineup is 
greatly felt because of her 
steady play. Long will start 
again at a forward position, 
the spot she occupied last 

The other guard spot will 
be handled by playmaker 
Linda Jones. Jones, who 
scored eight points per 
contest, handed out over 
five assists an outing and 

handled the ball brilliantly 
throughout the campaign a 
year ago. 

The fifth spot for Nolen's 
probable lineup to open the 
season will most likely fall 
into the hands of 
sophomore Helen LeFevre, 
a defensive ace who played 
in 24 games for Nolen last 

"Helen has the fifth spot 
as of now, but freshman 
Sharon Brown has been so 
impressive that I really 
can't say who will start off 
later," Nolen revealed. 

The remainder of the 
Lady Demon team is loaded 
with talent. Returning from 
last year is sophomore 
Mary Humphrey, who has 
added 10 pounds and is 
expected to be a key factor 
in this season's quest. 

Probably the most 
notable addition to the 
Lady Demon squad is 
center-forward Shawn 
Hickman of Pineville. 
Hickman was voted "Miss 
Basketball" in the La. State 
High School All-Star game, 
and her presence on the 
team will be a tremendous 
asset. Her pre-season play 

has been superb, and her 
play will be a definite plus 
for the Lady Demons. 

Other top recruits are 
Shari Broocks, Erica 
Dupree, Stephanie 
Washington, and Tracy 
Willis, who Nolen cites as 
"one of the best pure 
shooters I've ever seen.^ 

Nolen emphasized 
quickness and better 
fundmental basketball as 
her main points to utilize. 

"The talent we have is 
tremendous. We have so 
many good players that I 
feel will contribute. We're 
hoping to lessen our tur- 
novers from last year, and 
we plan to fast break a lot 
and take advantage of our 
tremendous amount of 
speed," Nolen concluded. 
"I think anyone who 
doesn't come out and watch 
us play this year will be 
cheating themselves." 

Believe me, if last year's 
performances are any 
indication of what will 
transpire this season, 
people may be hearing a lot 
about Pat Nolen's Lady

The co-ed two-on-two duo of David Goldstein and 
Elizabeth Rosenthal defeated Robert Lewis and partner 
Regina Barnes 32-22 in the finals. 

Goldstein played floor-general as the sharp-shooting 
Rosenthal gunned in 30 of their 32 points. Lewis kept 
the score close for most of the way as he controlled the 
boards but Goldstien pulled down some key rebounds 
towards the end. 

The finals were carried live over KNWD on the show 
Campus RecreACTION. Last years Miller One-on-One 
champs Goldstein and Barnes were featured in the 
game. Many other contestants from last years one-on- 
one games were also involved. 

Others who finished high in the tournament were: 
Keith Epps-Loraine Johnson, third, Cordell Upshaw- 
Kathy Tinsley, fourth. 

Gridders near playoffs 

With one more week of flag football behind them, 
most teams now know which teams they must beat to 
make the playoffs, or which teams they should have 

In Monday's action the VIP's No. 2 and Cougars 
tasted victory for the first time as they earned forfiet- 
wins over Louisiana Hall and Varnado's Vultures, 
respectively. The Hot Dogs remained unbeaten as they 
won over the Unknowns 14-8. 

Two teams cemented themselves to the top spots in 
their division's Tuesday with convincing victories. The 
Condors (4-0) downed the University of Yang 20-0 and 
AKA (2-1) blanked Sigma Kappa 26-0. (AKA defeated 
front-runner Phi Mu Thursday to move into first). The 
Glove Club won numero uno 24-12 verses the Rapides 
Bullets, and the Steelers took a forfiet from Varnado. 

Wednesday the King Pins were "out for blood" 
against Vernon's All-Stars (not literally I hope) but 
gladly excepted a forfiet-win. The Unknowns also won 
by forfiet from Louisiana Hall. AKA blanked Phi Mu 
8-0 and the Jocks nipped Conine 7-6 in overtime. 

To complete the week's action on Thursday ten teams 
were scheduled. Varnado forfieted to the Rapides 
Bullets as did the Vernon All-Stars to the Rough Riders. 
Phi Beta Sigma won a close one from Kappa Alpha No. 
1, 12-8; the Steelers demolished the Cougars 40-6, and 
the Jocks clipped Brotherhood 16-12. 

When it comes time to select individual stars some are 
always left out but at least a few should be mentioned 
here. Loraine Johnson of AKA scored 24 points in two 
games of flag football and also found time and energy 
to finish third in this week's co-ed two-on-two 
basketball tournament. Major Lyton scored eight of his 
team's 16 points in their victory over Brotherhood. Phi 
Beta Sigma's D.T. Brown scored all 12 points in a 12-8 
victory over Kappa Alpha No. 1. Robert Lewis scored 
two touchdowns and teammate Keith Epps scrambled 
70 yards for a score while he quarterbacked the Steelers 
to a 40-6 win against the Cougars. 

Heading into another week of the regular season six 
teams remain unbeaten.

Al Mathews, manager of 
the Demon Basketball 
squad, won the Current 
Sauce-Pizza Inn football 
contest as he came closest 
on the tiebreakers. 
Mathews, a native of 
Alexandria, missed four of 
the games listed as did 
second place Finisher Diane 
Adamson of Leesville. 

Diane, the first woman to 
place in the four-week old 
contest, came up five points 
short on the LSU-Florida 
and Tech-USL scores, and 
Mathews won it by coming 
closer to the actual scores of 
the games. 

In winning, Mathews 
wins a large Pizza Inn 

pizza, while Ms. Adamson: 
is awarded a medium size 
pizza for her finish. 

Third place this week was 
won by Jesse Bolton, who 
missed five of the given 
games as did nine other 
contestants, but he came 
closest on his tiebreaker 
scores and is the winner of a 
small pizza for his effort. 

The nine others who 
missed five games and 
gained homorable mention 
this week are Sandra 
Soileau, Don Brewton, 
Allen Murdock, Rhenda 
Cedars, Brian Childers, 
Lisa Zawmit, John Rouse,

i Hot Sauce is a dialogue with NSU 
president Dr. Rene Bienvenu. If you 
have a question, comment, com- 

1 plaint, or suggestion concerning 
Northwestern, write it down and 
drop it by the Current Sauce office 
(room 225-A in Kyser Hall) and 
we'll pass it along to Dr. Bienvenu. 
Hot Sauce contributions do not 

1 have to be signed. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 
, I have heard that you once said if 

we beat Tech in the State Fair game, 
i you would dismiss students from all 
I classes the following Monday. I feel 

we'll beat Tech this time, so are you 
! going to give us a day off if we do? 

I love this student body, but I 
hope that our pigskin boys perform 
'in such a way that we won't see one 
lanother until Tuesday morning. 

Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

What do you think about our new 
affiliation with the Trans-America 
Conference? Do you think this will 
benefit our athletic program, or will 
it be just another waste of time? 

I believe that our affiliation 
with the Trans American Con- 
ference will aid signigicantly in our 
'spring sports program. It certainly 
should provide these sports with 
added incentive since the Con- 
ference offers an opportunity to 
iplay in post season tournaments. 
We, of course, would prefer a 
conference which included football, 
ibut since such a conference 
membership is riot available to us at 
this time, we believe the Trans 
[America Conference will add 
treditilitv to our athletic programs. 


Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

What is going to happen to the 
Nursing students that were housed 
in the school of nursing building 
that was condemned on Kings 
Highway in Shreveport? 

The problem involving 
housing of students by LS in the 
Kings Highway facility has not been 
totally resolved. Some sifting has 
been done, and a few students have 
been moved to our Warrington 
Place Campus. We have also made 
Arrangements with Centenary 
College to house some of these 
people should it become necessary. 
No doubt a portion of the students 
(will resort to private housing. 
Again, however, no final decisions 
have been reached, and I am 
awaiting opinions from the State 
Fire Marshall before making those 
Decisions. I might add that students 
fent their rooms from LSU, and we 
do have jurisdiction over that 


Q. Dr. Bienvenu: 

I am curious about something Dr. 
B. Who are you for in the World 
Series? By the way, this year's 
Participants are Pittsburgh and 

If Baltimore had won Sunday 
I would have lost. Does this answer 
*our question? 


Q- Dr. Bienvenu: 

As a student, I have seen drastic 
improvements in the Current Sauce 
per last year. It really is good to see 
'merest in the paper again, especialy 
•fter it was bad-mouthed so much 
*st year. How do you feel about the 
^uce these days? 

The timing of this question is 
v ery appropriate as I had made the 
Comment last week to one of the 
.Current Sauce staff members that I 
felt this year's Current Sauce was 
°ne of the best, if not the best, we 
have had since I came to Nor- 
thwestern. I appreciate the 
Professional manner in which the 
Sauce addresses itself to matters of 
'merest, and also the diversity of 
Coverage that they are obtainin. 


Demons battle Bulldogs 
in State Fair Week climax 

That way 

Everyone is making plans to travel to Shreveport for 
Saturday's State Fair Classic football game between 
Northwestern and Louisiana Tech, even little Laura 
Bosarge. The five-year-old daughter of NSU Dean of 
Students Fred Bosarge, Laura is pointing the way to SGA 
State Fair Chairman Kelly Crowell (right) and the Demon 
mascot. (NSU photo by Don Sepulvado) 

It will be a chance for instant 
immortality for the Northwestern 
Demons this Saturday night when 
they battle Louisiana Tech's 
Bulldogs in Shreveport's State Fair 

In this, the 65th renewal of the 
North Louisiana rivalry, the 
Demons will look for their first win 
in nine years against the Techsters. 
The Bulldogs have dominated not 
only the most recent years but the 
entire series, holding a 44-16-4 
margin over Northwestern. 

Many fans believe this will be the 
year for NSU, though, and the 
Sauce examines the reasons why in 
the sports section beginning on page 

The football game is the cen- 
terpiece of State Fair Week at both 
schools, a week that at NSU 
promises to be exciting and in- 
teresting, according to NSU State 
Fair Chairman Kelly Crowell. 

"We have lined up what we think 
are some really great activities for 
the students leading right on up 
until the kickoff in Shreveport 
Saturday night," said Crowell. "We 
want to invite everyone to par- 
ticipate and help embarrass the 

State Fair Week got off to a fast 
start last night, as students attended 
a disco in the Student Union and 
later enjoyed a midnight breakfast 
in Iberville Dining Hall. 

Today's program includes 
Cheerleaders Day activities in 
Iberville at 5:30 p.m., and a beer 
bust in the Union at 8 p.m. 

State Fair T-Shirt Day is 
tomorrow on campus, highlighted 
by the annual Northwestern-Tech 
SGA Flag Football Game at 6 p.m. 

SGA tries to halt ADOS voting 

Senators Tony Hernandez and 
Cliff Lopez introduced a bill before 
the NSU-SGA to permanently 
revoke the voting privileges for 
ADOS students in Shreveport. The 
bill was introduced last night before 
the full senate. Since the meeting 
was held after the Saucedeadline, 
results could not be obtained for 
this week's paper. 

The bill reads as folows: 

Whereas, ADOS voting privileges 
are under question as to their 
validity, and, 

Whereas, ADOS' right to vote in 
NSU-SGA sponsored elections was 
never approved by the NSU-SGA 
senate, and 

Whereas, a 2-3 vote of the Senate 
is needed to amend the SGA 
Constitution and Election Code, 

Whereas, ADOS does not pay 
Student Activity Fees, 

Therefore be it resolved that 
ADOS should not receive any voting 

privileges at any NSU-SGA 
sponsored election. 

Proponents of the bill oppose the 
way the Associate Degree students 
were given the vote in campus 
elections this fall. ADOS students 
have never been allowed to vote in 
elections in years past, and were 
arbitrarily given the vote this 
semester by SGA President Terry 
McCarty and Commissioner of 
Elections Rick Dubois without the 
approval of the Senate. 

McCarty and Dubois felt the 
ADOS students should have the 
right to vote in campus elections 
earlier this fall, and after meeting 
with NSU president Rene Bienvenu, 
gave them that right, although the 
Shreveport students do not pay 
students association fees. 

Supporters of the bill began to 
question the validity of the Mc- 
Carty-Dubois move last week when 
the State Fair court was selected. 
The ADOS students block voted for 

their own nominee, as would be 
expected, but questions were raised 
as to the legality of the vote. Some 
supporters considering contesting 
the State Fair election, but decided 
they could not get enough hard 
enough evidence to prove that 
unfair electioneering went on. 

The supporters decided to attack 
the problem from a different angle 
to prevent similar problems in the 
future. The proposed bill would 
take voting rights from the ADOS 
students immediately.. Suppoters 
also believe the bill could be used in 
the future if other non-student 
activity fee paying students should 
ask for the vote (like Fort Polk 

Opponents were expected to 
argue that since the ADOS students 
are full-time students, they should 
be allowed to vote. A heated 
discussion was expected at Monday 
night's SGA meeting. The results of 
the meeting will appear in next 
week's Sauce. 

NSU joins Trans America 

Northwestern was accepted last 
week as one of two new members of 
the Trans America Athletic Con- 

Bob Vanatta, commissioner of 
the conference, made the an- 
nouncement of Northwestern 's 
admittance to the loop at press 
conference last Wednesday in 
Shreveport during the league's fall 
business meeting and basketball 
press day. 

Northwestern, making its first 
link with a conference since 1974 
when the Demons dropped out of 
the Gulf South Conference, joined 
the league along with Georgia 
Southern, which ilso had its 
membership application accepted at 
th conference geiieral meeting 

"We are very haupy that Nor- 
thwestern State University will be a 
part of our conference," Vanatta 
said. "The people ai the university 
have been very cooperative with us, 
and we feel that Northwestern's 
program will be a viable asset to 
the league." 

The Trans America Athletic 
Conference, which s in its second 
year of operation, ixpands to nine 
members with the addition of NSU 

™ H Georgia Southern. Already 
memoers of the league are Nor- 
theast Louisiana, Centenary 
College, Hardin-Simmons, Houston 
Baptist, Pan American, Mercer and 
Samford. Centenary was host for 
the fall meetings. 

"We feel that this is a big step for 
our athletic program," said NSU 
athletic director A.L. Williams after 
Northwestern's approval by the 
conference. "This will give our 
winter and spring sports a goal for 
their seasons and will add to our 
prestige in these sports." 

The TAAC competes in six 
different sports, five of which NSU 
will be competing in on a conference 
basis. The sports include basketball, 
baseball, tennis, golf, cross country 
and soccer, which NSU does not 
participate in. 

"It is not a football conference," 
Williams said, "But it does give our 
other sports a championship to 
shoot for. In football, we have the 
national Division 1-AA playoffs if 
we've good enough." 

Williams also said that conference 
officials have indicated that a track 
and field championship will likely 
be added in the future, meaning that 

the league will eventually offer 
competition in all of NSU's men's 
sports except football. 

The TAAC is working toward 
automatic qualification for the 
NCAA basketball tournament, and 
among the stipulations are league 
championships in six different 
sports and a full round-robin 
conference schedule. Teams in the 
league are playing each other only 
during the upcoming basketball 
season but will go to a full con- 
ference schedule during the 1980-81 

Affliation with the Trans 
America Conference gives NSU its 
third league membership in modern 
athletic history. The Demons for 
several decades were members of the 
Gulf States Conference with 
practically every other state school 
before that league was broken up in 
1971 , and NSU was a member of the 
Gulf South Conference from 1972 
until 1974. This is the first con- 
ference affilication for Nor- 
thwestern since the university 
achieved NCAA Division 1 (major- 
college) status in 1976. 

in Turpin Stadium. The evening 
meal will be served to students in the 
stadium beginning at 5 p.m. NSU 
has a two-year win streak on the line 
in the SGA contest. 

The "Burning of the Bulldog" 
pep rally, long an NSU tradition, 
will get underway Thursday evening 
at 6 across from Caddo Hall on 
campus. The Cane River Company- 
will also sponsor activities later the 
same evening at the local club. 

Friday is set aside for preparation 
of banners and travel to Shreveport, 
where Royal American Shows will 
set up for a two-week run at the 
State Fair. Among the performers 
scheduled for the free shows during 
this year's fair are the Sylvers, 
Crystal Gayle, and other top artists. 

Saturday, NSU's Kappa Alpha 
Order begins a "Demon Spirit 
Run" for charity in which fraternity 
members will relay a football from 
Natchitoches to the field at State 
Fair Stadium in time for the opening 
kickoff of the State Fair Classic. 

The annual brunch hosted by 
Shreveport Mayor Bill Hanna and 
the NSU SGA begins at 11 a.m. in 
the Shreveport Convention Center. 

Attending the brunch will be each 
school's State Fair Courts, SGA's , 
cheerleaders, adminstrators, and 
invited guests. 

The biggest party of the weekend 
gets underway at noon underneath 
the West Concourse of State Fair 
Stadium. The "State Fair Stadium 
Showdown" will last throughout 
the afternoon. 

The "Showdown" will feature 
bands, contests, and plenty fo food 
and drink for students. A pep rally 
starts at 3 p.m. for both schools. 

Shower facilities will be available 
for students until 5:50 in the locker 
rooms at State Fair Stadium, and 
another party will be held un- 
derneath the West Concourse of the 
stadium after the contest. 

Pre-game acrivities will be 
highlighted by the presentation of 
both schools State Fair Courts. 
NSU queen Denise Warren and her 
eight member court will be in- 
troduced before the game. 

Crowell urged all students to be at 
the Stadium at noon Saturday for 
the first annual "Showdown," free 
of charge. 

Lights out? 

These light fixtures are a contributing factor to the 
condemnation of the top floors of the King's Highway 
dormitory and classroom facility. Almost 100 students 
were evicted from their dormitory rooms Friday, October 
12, after the state fire marshal condemned the building the 
week before. See story on page four of this week's Sauce.

Fire Marshal closes 
Kings Highway dorm 

Close to 100 nursing students 
were evicted from their King's 
Highway dormitory after the state 
fire marshal had condemned the 
structure Friday. About half of the 
students were two-year NSU nursing 
students, while the rest were LSU 
nursing students. 

The building, which houses 
students and classrooms, was closed 
due to gross violations of the state 
fire code, according to the fire 
marshal's office. The fire marshal 
is allowing the first floor of the 
structure to remain open, so classes 
can be held there. 

According to NSU President 
Rene Bienvenu, the building does 
not belong to NSU but rather is 
owned by the LSU Medical Center. 
LSU is responsible for maintenance 
of the building, while Northwestern 
is allowed to use it for the two-year 
nursing program. 

Dr. Bienvenu said, "LSU has 
plans to either renovate or demolish 

the structure after we move com- 
pletely out of it, but we can't do that 
until our new facility on Line 
Avenue iscompleted. As you know, 
that structure is being delayed at this 

If you're not aware of that 
problem, a group of historical 
preservationists is currently at- 
tempting to block construction of 
the new nursing faciltiy unless a 75 
year-old structure which currently 
stands on the site is saved. The 
group claims the Line Avenue 
School, or Texarkana Annex, was 
built by a noted Shreveport architect 
and is one of only three of his works 
that remains standing in Shreveport 
today. Spokesmen for NSU, have 
refured the claim that the structure 
has any significant historical value. 

The university administration 
hopes to have the problems cleared 
up within the next month or so. For 
more details on this story, see Mike 
Gallien's story in the Focus section 
of the Sauce.

handled off the top of the head," 
explained Jubbe. 

He further explained that 
"under no conditionare we trying to 
rip anyone off. We are asking 
people to just sit down with us and 
discuss these problems. If an 
organization or group has only $100 
to spend, we will try .to work 
something out. The catering aspect 
is entirely flexible. A lot of times 
kids want to be fed in the dorm. This 
can be done by picking up meal 
tickets in the dorm and having them 
punched so that they can eaj^jh the 

Bill Holstetler, head of the Rec 
Complex, reported that in the 
Student Union at peak times there is 
only one cook. Jubbe replied that 
four new cooks have been in- 
terviewed for work in the Union. He 
also added that three new electronic 
cash registers were purchased which 

will speed up the checking process. 

One of the big problems all 
students face is waiting in line to 
eat. Comments were made that fifty 
people will come in to eat and turn 
directly around and break line to go 
back for second helpings. A 
suggestion was made that the 
students be made to go back to the 
end of the line if they wish to have 

The cooks are responsible for the 
people coming in that have not yet 
eaten. Uncomfortable weather 
conditions make waiting outside 
bothersome. There was some 
discussion of having a railway 
established inside the cafeteria 
before the cold weather arrives so 
that people can wait in comfort. 

Complaints were made about the 
freshness of the food and the 
problem of chicken and steaks not 
being cooked well enough. Jubbe 
promised to look into those problem 

History prof speaks in 
Missouri on human rights 

Northwestern history professor 
Dr. William A. Poe will present a 
paper this weekend at the annual 
meeting of the Mid-America 
Historical Conference in 
Springfield, Mo. 

Poe's paper presentation is en- 
titled "West African Colonization 
as a Manifestation of English- 
Speaking Humanitarianism Prior to 

The Northwestern professor said 
the presentation capitalizes on 
current world-wide interest in 
human rights movements to re- 
focus attention on this particular 
period of the 19th century. 

"The paper from this point of 
view deals primarily with English 
thought," said Poe, "but also with 
some American." 

In his paper, which is one of 
many to be presented by scholars 
representing numerous universities, 
Poe offers some criticism of leading 
living historians in their in- 
terpretation of African 

Poe states, "I will argue that 
some of these historians in recent 
years have gone too far in 
minimizing the humanitarian role 
and the actual accomplishments of 
the movement." 

Hardy beats Treen

Paul Hardy led the race in NSU's 
first mock election since 1971, held 
Wednesday in front of the Student 
Union. Hardy received 26 percent 
of the votes and Dave Treen was 
seconded with 24 percent, according 
to a vote count by the SGA. 

Bubba Henry was third with 13 
percent of the NSU vote. Jimmy 
Fitzmorris gained 9 percent while 
Edgar "Sonny" Mouton gathered 
in a 7 percent share. Louis Lambert 
was voted 4 percent of the campus 
vote. Greg Nelson, running on the 
Socialist Worker ticket, received no 
votes from the NSU students. 

Another 12.5 percent of the vote 
went to write-in candidates. Leading

For Sale 

In order to raise money for tech 
weekend, a small group of students 
from the second floor of East 
Rapides dorm decided to auction 
off East Rapides and the Iberville 
"so-called dining hall." The highest 
bidder so far is an oil-rich Arab 
named Nasser Nasafabi. 

His two dollar md twenty-five 
cent bid is expected to stand. 

Nasafabi's plans are to convert 
Iberville into an all-night disco, in 

which all the cooks will begin taking 
disco lessons from Fred "Dancing" 
Beebe, and Dot (the lasy who 
punches meal tickets) will keep her 
old job of checking ID's. East 
Rapides will be transformed into an 
old French Quarter hotel, with all 
the RA's becoming bellhops, under 
the supervision of Mrs. Evans. 

Since the bid is so low, 
arrangements have been made to 
sell President Bienvenu's house. 

SU prof in Chicago 
to speak on self-help 

Northwestern has received a 
S45.419 grant from the State 
Department of Education to 
develop a nutrition education 
program for elementary and 
secondary school teachers. 

Directed by Dr. Vazgen 
Yaghoubian, assistant professor of 
home economics at NSU, the new 
program is designed to train 
teachers to properly instruct 
students on the values of good 

Yaghoubian said a special course 
is now being developed for use in 
the program, which also includes a 
regional conference to be conducted 
in December by a nationally-known 

The NSU home economics 
professor said several hundred 
teachers in 14 North-Central 
Louisiana parishes will have an 
opportunity to participate in the 

"Our objective is to develop a 
program on how to teach good 
nutrition to students, especially the 
young students," said Yaghoubian. 
Classes will begin in January. 

The program will include dif- 
ferent types of activities to aid in the 
teaching of good nutrition. Par- 
ticipants will also be instructed on 
private and public agencies which 
can be used as reliable sources of 
information about good nutrition. 

"We think it is very important for 
a teacher to know how to evaluate a 
teaching aid," Yaghoubian stated. 
"Teachers need to know what 
information can be used at a parti- 
cular grade level. You certainly 
can't use third-grade level of in- 
formation on a high school student, 
because you would bore him to 
death. Teachers need to learn what 
is the proper information that can 
be used in different levels." 

Yaghoubian said the nutrition 
education project now being 
developed by Northwestern is part 
of a statewide program to better 
educate all ages of students on the 

subject of good nutrition. 

"Nutrition is becoming more 
important earh day because junk 
foods are getting a larger percentage 
of people's money each day," said 
the NSU home economist. "There 
is just not much nutritional value in 
junk food to contribute to the well- 
being of the student." 

Yaghoubian said junk food, like a 
"daily diet" of soft drinks, chips 
and chocolate candies, are 
"seriously hurting" students all 
across the country. 

"What we have to do is start 
chaneine the nutritional patterns of 

our students," said Yaghoubian. 
"The way you achieve this is by 
starting your educational program 
at the childhood levels... children 
who are just now beginning their' 
school careers." 

He added. "It is important to 
begin such a program in childhood 
because this is when a person begins 
to develop personality, ways of life. 
Good nutrition can have an effect 
on a person's personality. It is very 
difficult to change a mature per- 
son's lifestyle, but we can do 
something now to alter the 
nutritional patterns in children." 

Media Conference

year's conference, which will 
feature workshop sessions for 
student assistants covering such 
areas as organizing library clubs, 
program ideas, library activities and 
bulletin board displays. 

The annual conference in A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Auditorium 
begins with registration at 8 a.m. 
The first general session gets under 
way at 8:45 a.m.

NSU nursing school faces evictions, delays 

s Focus 

If you haven't heard by now, 
there are two major problems facing 
Northwestern nursing students in 
Shreveport at this time. One is the 
condemning of the King's Highway 
dorm-classroom facility and the 
other is the delay of the construction 
of an all-new nursing facility by 
preservationists wanting to save an 
old school on the site of the 
proposed $7 million nursing 
structure. However, what most 
people don't realize is that the two 
problems are intimately related. 

There are over 300 students 
enrolled in classes at the King's 
Highway campus in NSU's two-year 
nursing program, approximately 54 
of which lived in the dorm there. 
The buildings, although built for 
NSU's use several years ago, has 
never belonged to Northwestern. 
Presently the structure belongs to 

the Louisiana State University 
Medical Center in Shreveport. 

According to the state fire 
marshal's office the structure has 
been in a state of disrepair for some 
time. LSU has been given numerous 
opportunities to repair the structure 
by the fire marshal and numerous 
warnings have been issued. Finally, 
on Friday, Oct. 5 the building was 
condemned, with the exception of 
the first floor. The fire marshal 
gave NSU and LSU one week to 
have the building emptied. 

The schools then attempted to 
place the students in other housing, 
and were quite successful in placing 
the close to 100 students living in the 
structure 54, from NSU, the rest 
from LSU. Classes were scheduled 
to continue on the first floor of the 
structure throughout the remainder 
of the semester at which time the

These crumbling water lines were found in the King's 
Highway nursing facility. Because of this and other 
factors, the state fire marshal comdemned the top floors 
of the building on Friday, Oct. 5. Students residing in the 
building were given one week to make other living 
arrangements. (Shreveport Journal photo by Ralph 

situation will be reevaluated, ac- 
cording to officials. 

According to NSU President 
Rene Bienvenu, there is not much 
NSU can do about the King's 
Highway situation. "It is an un- 
fortunate situation," Bienvenu said, 
"but we've got our hands tied in 
this situation. The building belongs 
to LSU and they are responsible for 
maintaining it. They do have plans 
for the structure but they won't go 
into effect until we are completely 
out of the building and into our new 

"Although Northwestern does 
not guarntee housing in Shreveport, 
I feel badly these young people 
being tossed out of their rooms. 
That's why we have helped them 
find other places to live as much as 
we could," Bienvenu added. 

LSU's plans for the structure will 
include either complete renovation 
or demolition of the King's 
Highway structure but nothing can 
be done until NSU moves its two- 
year nursing program to the 
proposed three or four story nursing 
facility to be built on Line Avenue, 
just one block from the present 
Warrington Place campus and two 
blocks from Schumpert Medical 

However, that brings up another 
problem. Construction of the new 
faciltiy was scheduled to begin in the 
late summer after the demolition of 
the three buildings that stood on the 
former Caddo Parsih school site. 

The two newer structures were 
torn down and the oldest was 
scheduled for the same fate when a 
group of presevationists, Historic 
Preservation of Shreveport stepped 

The group wanted to save the old 
Line Avenue School, or Texarkana 
Annex, which was built by architect 
N.S. Allen in 1905. The group feels 
the structure is worthy if saving 
because it is one of the only three 
structures built by Allen that 
remains standing in Shreveport 
today. According to the group, 
Allen's architecture work "changed 

the face of Shreveport." The group 
has compared Allen to such notable 
architects as Frank Lloyd Wright 
and Louis Sullivan. 

The historical group approached 
Commissioner of Administration 
Charles Roemer, and he halted 
preparations for demolition in 
August, so a study could be made as 
to the historical significance of the 
structure. His office is responsible 
for the construction and destruction 
of state buildings. 

Since, that time, Historic 
Preservation of Shreveport at- 
tempted to have the structure placed 
on the National Register of Historic 
Places without Northwestern 
permission, but was unsuccessful. 
They have since developed plans for 
Northwestern to include the 
structure in the new nursing facility. 
The group claims the building could 
be included at a savings of $600,000 
to Northwestern. 

Northwestern's architect, John 
A. Walker, refuted the possible 
savings and Allen's reputation in a 
recent Shreveport Journalarticle. In 
the article, Walker downplayed 
Allen's achievements, noting that he 
was not nearly as well known as the 
preservationists claimed. Walker 
said Allen was not listed in several 
historic directories of Caddo Parish 
and had even dropped from the 
roster of a national group of ar- 
chitects 10 years before the Line 
Avenue School was built. 

Walker called the structure "early 
classroom" and said the ar- 
chitecture was not impressive. 
Walker also said costs of renovating 
the building for NSU's use would be 
prohibitive, and that it would 
probably skyrocket the overall cost 
of the project. 

To get an overall view of the 
situation, the Sauce took an im- 
promptu tour of the school that has 
only been used for adult education 
classes since 1964. We found ex- 
trmemely old, crumbling building 
that was condemned earlier this 
year. Inside, plaster was falling off 
walls, brick and mortar were 

crumbling, water had rotted its way 
through the roof of the structure, 
down a wall, through the second 
floor and into the first. Stairs were 
falling in and in places, chunks of 
the ceiling had fallen to the floor. 
About the only attractive part of the 
interior in our opinion, was the 
three-sectioned arched window on 
the front and back of the building, 
but they seem hardly woth saving. 

Pres. Bienvenu hopes the matter 
will be cleared up soon. He said, 
"The building had been for sale for 
the past seven years and it took me 
nearly two years of going through 
channels to get permission to buy 
the property. We didn't know the 
building had any historical 
significance at that time. We 
brought it in good faith with the 
intention of clearing it out. That's 
when the preservationists steeped 
"Now. I'm not against 

vation. Just recently, we applied to 
have Caldwell Hall, Warren Easton ' 
Hall, and Rusell Library placed onl "A 
the National Register. It's just thatlj the-A

Bienvenu continued, "We wanujiavinj

Avenue because it is a main "B< 
thoroughfare. It's a great location. UtoO h£

preser- that long.

This rotting floor found in the King's Highway nursing 
facility was found open. Many of the exits and entrances 
to the building were blocked or otherwise impassable. 
Plans for the future of the facility are in the hands of the

nursing . called "Showdown-at-the-

i. sponsor. There is going to be the 
•'Seventh Annual Original Rally-in- 
he- Alley," but it's not the original 
I rally because it has a new sponsor. 
Now, have you got it straight? 
etty confusing, isn't it? Well, 
let's try to figure it out. 
' The "Rally-in-the-Alley" has 
been sponsored for the last six years 
the Sportspage Club in down- 
own Shreveport. The annual 
blowout became so popular, the 
annual State Fair parades and pep 
rallies in Shreveport had to be 
cancelled. People simply lost in- 
terest in them. The rally was the 

Since last year's rally, the 
| Sportspage closed its doors and the 
rally lost its sponsor. What to do 
tibout it became the job of the NSU 
Ud La. Tech SGA's. At NSU, the 
[*SGA delegated the problem to Kelly 
PCrowell's State Fair committee, 
j | Crowell and her group were 
tindecided as to whether they should 

try to find another sponsor for the 
rally or to find an alternative. 
Finally, in late September, a group 
from Tech working on the same 
problem set up a meeting with 
representatives of Humphrey's, 
which is also located in the alley. 
Humphrey's said they would 
sponsor a similar event, and both 
the Tech and NSU groups thought 
the problem was settled. 

The very next day, a represen- 
tative for the State Fair Stadium 
showed up in Natchitoches to talk to 
Crowell's group. The representative 
made the group an offer "it 
couldn't refuse." In the proposal, 
the stadium offered students of both 
schools an event similar in nature to 
the rally. The "Showdown at the 
Stadium" would include all the 
contests and fun of the rally, plus a 
few added extras. As well as booze 
and bands, the stadium rep also 
offered the schools free use of the 
dressing room and shower facilities 
at the stadium. 

In effect, the offer had many 
advantages to the rally offered by 
Humphrey's. Students would be 
able to get to the fair grounds early, 
get a good parking place inside the 
fair grounds, and be able to stay all 
day, without the hassels of fighting 
the always heavy traffic late in the 
evening. The offer was so enticing 
that, after discussing it with the 
Tech group, Crowell's State Fair 
committee accepted the stadium 

With all of that settled, everyone 
was happy and looking forward to 
the new pre-game party. Crowell 
and her group were preparing for 
publicity for the event. They made 
attempts to contact the management 
at Humphrey's to inform them of 
the decision to move the party, but 

the attempts proved unsuccessful 
and Humphrey's never returned the 
calls. Other than that there were no 
other problems. That is, until last 
week. That's when, as one SGA 
spokesman said, "All hell broke 

What happened? Well, Hum- 
phrey's finally called the SGA. As 
you can imagine, they were quite 
upset. The club's management then 
began a bizarre series of phone calls 
playing the Tech and NSU SGA's 
againstach other. In the meantme, 
the stadium reps got involved and a 
small scale war ensued. 

After the smoke cleared, the Tech 
SGA ended by supporting the 
Humprhey's rally, while the NSU 
SGA decided to support the stadium 

State Fair committee chairman 
Crowell explained why the NSU 
group decided to back the stadium 
bash, "We just felt like the stadium 
people had been more honest with 
us right from the start. Humphrey's 
never gave us anything definite until 
it was too late. Besides, the stadium 
has so much more to offer. There 
will be more contests, better 
facilities, and the students won't 
have to drive all the way across town 
after the party is over." 

Crowell continued, "Entrance to 
the fair grounds is free with football 
tickets, which can be purchased for 
$2 with an ID down at the field 
house. I hope everybody gets their 
tickets and comes to the Showdown. 
There will be a lot of things to do 
and I know everyone will have a 
good time." 

SGA President Terry McCarty 
added, "We hope to see all of the 
Northwestern students at the 
Showdown. It's safer, there's more 
room, more parking, and more to

Radical Rag 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

This time 

You can almost hear the un- 
spoken question as it wanders 
aimlessly around campus, nervously 
waiting for Saturday night. 

People are reluctant to say it out 
loud. They may be afraid of a 
jinx. ..or afraid of the ribbing from 
pesimistic friends. 

It is a rather painful subject for 
even the most ardent Demon en- 
thusiasts. After all, too many to 
recall, high hopes have been 
brought crashing to earth. 

Will this be the year? Blasphemy, 
you say. I have jinxed the Demons 
now, even before they step onto the 
field for Saturday night's State Fair 
Classic game with Louisiana Tech, 
just by hoping or wishing-some will 
say dreaming-for an NSU victory. 

Will this be the year? Why this 
year, instead of last year, or next 
year, or ... This will be the year. 
And why? Well, let me tell you. . 

This will be the year. Not since 
1970 have the Demons left State 
Fair Stadium with a win over the 
Bulldogs, but this 1979 Nor- 
thwestern team will walk away tired, 
but happy. Back in 1970, it was a 
24-yard field goal that supplied the 
winning edge as NSU nosed out 
Tech 20-17 in the last minute. This 
time, it may be that close again. 

This will be the year. It will be a 
tough battle, for fiery Tech coach 
Larry Beightol has driven his troops 
relentlessly in search of the winning 
spark that has been so much a part 
of past Tech squads... but he is still 
looking. The 'Dogs will be hungry. 
His defense will be strong, perhaps 
as strong as ever at Tech. His of- 
fense? They are young, inex- 
perienced, and will make mistakes. 

But they have improved much since 
the start of the season. 

This will be the year.Tech is 
suffering through a bad year, with a 
losing record and constant defec- 
tions from the team... like Ail- 
American Jimmy Blackshire, and 
most recently starting quarterback 
Eric Barkley. But Tech has 
tradition, and we all know how 
much that has meant to the 'Dogs in 
years past. Tech also has 
tremendous team unity and spirit 
this year— those who have weathered 
the coaching change have a common 
bond— that will smooth over those 
rough edges. 

This will be the year. Not because 
of Tech's weaknesses, but because 
of NSU's strengths. We have more 
experience, more speed, more senior 
leadership, and most importantly, 
more incentive. Enough is enough. 
The players and coaches, students 
and followers, all have been not 
only disappointed but embarrassed 
in recent years. This year, we have 
the best support in school history, 
and one of the best teams in the past 
fifteen years. 

This will be the year. Why? 
Revenge, ppride, attitude... these are 
key words for the Demons this 
week. NSU wants revenge, ob- 
viously, and this year the team has 
more pride about itself and the 
school. If they run onto the field 
with the attitude that they can beat 
Tech, instead of again bowing to 
that Tech mystique, This will be the 

33-21. 20-16. 26-7. 34-0. 41-14. 
35-6. 30-8. 45-20. 
Need I say more? 

They 9 re out 

Northwestern is in the midst of a 
very embarassing situation, and 
there is not too much we can do 
about it. Furthermore, it is not our 
fault, and we had no way to avoid 

Confuses? Well, if you are, just 
imagine how over 80 students at the 
Kings Highway campus felt when 
they learned they had one week 
tomove out of their dorm-because 
the state fire marshal had con- 
demned it. 

The Kings Highway campus, 
home of NSU's two-year associate 
degree nursing program, had only 
one building... and now, for all 
practicl purposes, they dont have it. 
the building, which was serving as a 
combination dorm, office facility, 
and classroom structure, is owned 
by the LSU Med Center, and 
sufficient repairs to numerous faults 
are impossible. 

Mike gallien, Sauce Focus Editor, 
has the details in his story in the 
Focus section of the paper. 

The major problem at this point is 
relocating the over 80 residents, 
some of whom have no other place 
to go in the area. The folks at 
Shreveport's Centenary Apartments 
are being as helpful as possible, 
supplying almost 30 students with a 
place to live at the same rate they 
were paying in the dorm. But the 
others are having to scratch and 
scrape to find a place to live for the 
next two monts, while trying to keep 
up with the overshelming load of 
work involved in classwork. 

Classes are still being held on the 
bottom floor of the building, 
because there is no place else for 
them, where the program willgo 
after this rough and rocky fall is 
anyone's guess. 

Until Shreveport officials quit 
worrying about getting re-elected 
and start to do something about it, 
the approximately 330 students in 
the program will just have to do 
with what they are given by 
Shreveport, and by the LSU of- 

It was bad before the building was 
officially condemned, and when the 

Ad program is finally loiced to 
move out of the structure, it will be 
worse. For those 330 students, it is 
hard to think about the future, the 
present is bad enough. 

Who is to blame? No one knows 
for sure, least of all me, but we do 
know who not to blame. 

Don't blame NSU officials-they 
established the program at Kings 
Highway when asked to by the state, 
and since then the state has given us 
virtually no help whatsoever in 
improving the sub-standard 
facilities. The building is owned by 

Don't blame the students or 
faculty- they deserve some sort of 
award for making it as long as they 
have at Kings Highway. With the 
small, outdated, and now con- 
demned building they have had to 
work in, it is no wonder they turn 
out good nurses, they often face as 
much adversity in two years at Kings 
Highway in that building as they 
will in ten years of actual nursing. 

The sad thing is that some 
Shreveport officials are riding the 
fence on this issue, since the 
building in question is considered 
some sort of city landmark. It 
should be, since it was built in 1905. 
Some folks, who obviously haven't 
been inside the dilapidated building 
for years, are trying to get the city to 
declare it a historical monument, 
thereby preventing its destruction. 

If the city follows the recom- 
mendation of the fire marshal and 
of the architect, the building will be 
torn down and Shreveport will build 
a new one. If they don't, and bow 
to the pressure of a few rich, 
uninformed historians who like the 
building "because of all the fond 
memories it gives me" (quoting a 
recent letter to the Shreveport 
Journal, the NSU associate degree 
program will be virtually ruined. 

It is time for Shreveport and LSU 
officials to quit playing politics with 
the building and build a new one, 
before it is too late for the 330 
students who have suddenly found 
themselves figuratively hanging 
from a tree limb that is sure to snap 
before too long. 



Get down at the Showdown D 

You wouldn't know it by looking 
around campus, but this coming 
weekend is the infamous Tech 
Weekend. Held annually in 
Shreveport, it always drains the 
students of enthusiasm, tears, and 

For you freshman who have never 
participated in Tech Weekend, 
otherwise known as State Fair 
Weekend, and for you upper- 
classmen who were too wasted to 
know the difference, the official 

"party" lasts a week, beginning the 
Monday before the game, yester- 
day, and culminates with the 
Northwestern-Louisiana Tech 
football game in State Fair Stadium. 

The unofficial "party" began last 
Friday and is continuing throughout 
the week, at all hours of the day and 
night, and culminates with the mass 
absenteeism of classes Monday 

Like last year, and many years 
before, the school is gearing up for 

the showdown. Among the events 
the school has lined up this year to 
help get your morale up are: a disco 
dance held yesterday; a midnight 
breakfast held at some ungodly 
hour this morning; Cheerleader 
activities in Ibervill Dining Hall 
(Makes for a mellow meal) and a 
campus-wide social, on Tuesday; 
State Fair T-shirt Day and SGA 
Football between NSU and Tech on 
Wednesday; Burning of the Bulldog 
on Thursday, and of course,

I'm writing this letter in the hope 
of it getting printed. The topic of 
this letter is to speak out against the 
type of behavior conducted at the 
Gong Show last Wednesday night. 

Don't get me wrong, the acts were 
good and more power to these 
people. I also believed some of the 
talented acts weren't given a chance 
due to the behavior of the audience. 
I'm not going into detail, because of 
you were there, then you know who 
these people are. And if you're one 
of these people, you should be 
ashamed of yourself for conducting 
yourself in this manner. It makes 
me ask the question-Where were 
you raised abd how were you 

I believe the Gong Show should 
never be attempt again but a Talent 
show would be a sufficient sub- 
stitute. It should be known ahead 
of time that unorderly conduct will 
not be tolerated and if it happens, 
the show should be stopped. 

My heart goes out to the people 
who weren't given a chance, and I 
would understand if you chose not 
to participate in another talent 

So students of Northwestern, I've 
stated my opinion. Now state your's 
Have you got the Guts? 

An Angry Student 

The SUGB is really working hard 
to produce a variety of interesting 

Dump those Dogs 

activities for everyone at NSU. A 
recent event, the Gong Show, was 
most successful in attracting both 
campus-wide talent and a colorful 
audience. The committee that 
organized this event have something 
to pat themselves on the back for, as 
do all the SUGB committees. 
However, several of the audience 
members could not be commended 
for the part they played in the show. 

I don't know if everyone realized 
that Gong Show was not a talent 
show, so to speak-but a show with 
talent where the judging is geared to 
audience reaction and preference 
rather than the judge's serious 
estimations of talent. The same 
judges with a differnt audience 
could have produced different 
scoring results, so those who did not 
make it this time should not feel 
bad. The contestants all did a super 
job in sharing their talent with a 
peer audience. The judges had a 
tough job, but they handled things 
just great by adding good humor to 
the show with funny signs and their 

It was evident that the only people 
not to be commended that evening 
were certain audience members who 
threw ice during one act that was 
particularlygood but that did not fit 
their (the audience's) mood at this 
time. Those audience members 
deserved one huge gong. People 
with standards of behavior that low 
should be put up on a stage in the 
spotlight in front of their friends so 
of others can throw ice on them. 
Maybe that would be equal treat- 
ment, but I am glad no one else on 
campus stoops that low. 

I would like to see SUGB 
members continue to supply the 

students with quality programs, and 
I hope the actions of the clear 
minority would not put a damper on 
future programming or on student 
participation in an otherwise very 
fun experience.

3oatner and took advantage of a slow Demon 
vas treatiete nse to ta ' ce a ^3-7 victory over the Nor- 
the cityihwestern Demons here Saturday night, 
e was I Boatner crushed the Demon defense for 188 
ated th^vflrds on 31 carries while scoring three 
touchdowns to dominate a defense that NSU 
jead coach A.L. Williams called "not intense 
; Shrevepa^atsoever." The Demon offense was not 
nferenceffluch more intense as they could manage only 
Queens, first downs against the swarming Lion 
showed i^fensive unit. The Demon ground game never 
ant * mojot untracked, and totaled only 11 yards 
led on %j S hiing. 

eekend, , Southeastern, now 2-4 on the capaign, came 
ors to i, t o the game with a struggling offensive unit, 
track, ct^jt head coach Billy Brewer pulled out all the 
f° r thojops and played very liberally on offense, 
Shrevepo^jiing up nearly 400 yards in total offense. 
- to staJk'They just gave us a good country whip-

pening kickoff and moved to the SLU 39, but

After the scoreless first quarter, the Lions

tother rjdfpn scoring drive which took 13 plays to go 61

as gone qjhs that kept the drive alive. All told, the 
the "Rsltens converted three consecutive third-downs 
i the scoring drive. Wells passed to Jeff Coates 
*r the score from one yard out, and Frank 
Humphre&ndono added the PAT, making it 7-0. 
wheretlNSU then failed to move the ball and was 
that farced to punt once again. SLU wasted little 
r. And tWne putting up another score as Boatner ram 
didn't, an 

through and around the Demon defense. 
Boatner climaxed a 54-yard drive with another 
one-yard run, but this time Londono's con- 
version attempt failed. Ironically, Londono has 
missed only three conversion attempts in his 
entire career, and all the misses have come 
against the Demons. 

The Demons, who were not helped by bad 
field position most of the night, again could not 
move the ball and were forced to punt. SLU 
moved 50 yards on an 1 1 -play drive, resulting in 
a 32-yard field goal by Londono, for a com- 
manding 16-0 second-quarter lead. 

NSU moved the ball well on the ensuing 
series after the kickoff and got as far as the 
SLU 22, but on second down, Kenny Philibert 
was intercepted by Lion defensive star Or- 
mando Whitlock and the Demon threat was 
snuffed out. Had the Demons scored on that 
particular drive, it may have been an entirely 
different game in the second half, but the 
momentum seemed to shift entirely to SLU 
from that point on. 

The Demon offense was so erratic and 
ineffective in the first half that they could only 
move into Lion territory twice. Both times they 
moved the ball well and got deep into SLU 
territory, but both times they came up empty. 

Southeastern rambled for 15 first downs and 
almost 200 total yards in the first half, while the 
Demons could manage only six first downs. 
SLU gained 170 of its first half yardage on the 
ground, and the Demon defense could never 
adjust after that. 

The Lions put the game away on the first 
possession of the second half as they took the 
kickoff and marched 80 yards in 11 plays to 
take a 24-0 lead. They chewed up over six 
minutes of the clock, and Boatner carried nine 
times in the drive and picked up 76 of the 80 
yards in the drive. 

The Demons struck back quickly for their 
only score of the game when Kenny Philibert 
found Randy Liles down the sideline for a 55- 
yard scoring pass only two minutes later, and 
the Demons had a chance to make a game of it 
when with the score 24-7 after Dale Quickel 
made good on the conversion. 

However, SLU took the Demon kickoff and 
went 90 yards in 13 plays to put the game out of 
reach. Boatner scored his third TD of the game 

with another one-yard run that tapped the drive 
which used up six minutes of the third quarter. 
SLU led 31-7 at that point, and it was all 
academic afterwards. 

The Lions capped their scoring by trapping 
Demon reserve quarterback Rex Henderson in 
the end zone for a safety with 13 minutes 
remaining in the game. Both teams substituted 
freely most of the final period and the score 
ended with NSU on the short end of a 33-7

The Demons were forced to pass 
during most of the second half as 
their running game was ineffective. 
They ended up with only 1 1 yards in 
the ground. Starter Kenny Philibert 
threw for 165 yards on 12 of 17

field," Williams explained, "but we 
always came up short when we got 
near scoring territory. We didn't 
have much protection and our 
quarterbacks didn't do a very good 
job of getting out of trouble." 

The Demons hurt themselves with 
their lack of intensity. This was 
evident in their play as they missed 
several tackles which helped to take 
themselves out of the games. 
Williams added; "We did not play 
with any enthusiasm at all and we 
had several key breakdowns that 

hurt us both offensively and 

The lopsided defeat didn't leave 
Williams without confidence in his 
team. "We've regrouped before,

One bright spot in the 
Southeastern game was the turnover 
situation. The Demons had only 
one interception in the game and no 
fumbles. Before the trip to 
Hammond, they had given up six 
interceptions and lost four fumbles. 

Turnovers will be the key to 
Saturday's State Fair game. The 
Demons were indeed shocked last 
week but they can come back. Their 
best game this year came after a 
demoralizing loss at Arlington. The 
Demons are now 2-2 while Tech will 
bring a 1-4 record to Shreveport.

All the facts to know about Tech 

Defense as sound as ever 

RUSTON- Defensively, Tech is 
probably as sound as anyone 
' around. Despite the fact that gave 
up an awful lot of points and 
yardage on the road in their first 
three games, they came back against 
Miami on the road and gave up only 
<;ix points and average total yardage 
in a rain- soaked 6-0 loss. 

Tech then came home, winless 
'!ind looking for a star in the cloudy 
skies. It was homecoming, and 
: before 16,600 partisan fans, the 
^Tech defense came through with 
J what Mike Tolleson, who heads up 
^La. Tech's defensive coaching staff, 
'tailed "the best defensive per- 
formance I have ever been 
"associated with" in a 17-0 
whitewashing of USL. Considering 
that TOIleson has been playing or 
coaching football for 15 years, that 
performance by the Tech defensive 
unit must have been ungodly, and 
the facts and statistics about the 
game show it. 

The Bulldogs allowed USL just 
iwo first downs the ENTIRE game 
while giving up only 53 yards in 
otal offense that came into the 
sw game very respectable. Both figures 
marked new school records for a 
_ n jf ech defense. 

jty The Tech defense played 

;• Relatively well in two of its first 
three losses. Tolleson said the 
defense " progressed each time out. 

„,, 3 Of course, you have to have some 
luck, too, when bounces go right 
and things in gener al just go your 
way." Certainly, things have gone 

i; <. Tech's way recently on defense. 

Tech's defensive unit of a year 
ago was extremely talented and 
effective. The Tech D con- 
tinually throttled the NSU offense 
in last year's State Fair Classic, and 
as a result helped the Techsters to 
their eighth straight victory in the 
inter-state rivalry. 

The mainstay of the recent 
performances of the Tech defense 
has been the defensive line. By 
putting constant pressure on op- 
posing passers, the defensive 
backfield has been able to come up 
with several key interceptions. 
DefensiYe back Jean Dornier, who 
leads the club in intercepts with five 
took advantage of the pressure by 
the line and picked off four USL 
passes, tieing a Southland Con- 
ference single game record. 

Most of the pressure put on 
enemy passers comes from defensive 
tackle Johnny Robinson, who has 
totaled 61 tackles through five 
games and also been credited with 
seven quarterback sacks for a minus 
44 yards. Altogether, he had 10 
stops behind the line of scrimmage 
totaling minus 60 yards. 

Defensive end Andre Young, who 
moved from linebacker to his spot 
now in the spring, has been out- 
standing as well. He has 40 total 
tackles as well as three QB sacks for 
a minus 31 yards. Tolleson credited 
several big plays early in the a game 
by Young as the key to setting the 
tone for the Tech defense against 

Shoring up the remainder of the 
Tech defense is linebacker Marshall 

Cowley, who leads the team in 
tackles with over 13 a game. 
Another linebacker, Tony Tademy, 
has also performed well, totaling 
over 10 tackles per contest. 

Rick Reggio, Lavon James, and 
Larry Gideon, who is second on the 
team in interceptions behind 
Dornier, combine with Dornier to 
form a very good defensive 
secondary. Against USL, the 
quartet allowed only two of 19 
passes to be completed while picking 
off seven of the incomplete ones. 
Most of that can be attributed to the 
Tech pass rush, which teaming with 
a good Tech rushing defense record, 
makes up a traditionally tough 
Bulldog defensive unit.

Beightol new to Fair game 

by Buddy Wood 
Sauce Sports Editor 

For some who will be involved, it will be their fourth 
time around. For others, it will mean another in a long 
line of games. But for one person involved, it'll be his 
first time to be associated with a State Fair game, that 
person being new La. Tech head football coach Larry 

Beightol, who took over 

program after Athletic 
Director Maxie Lambright 
stepped down from the 
head coaching position 
March 1, said he will "treat 
this game no differently 
than any other game." 

Beightol explained in a 
recent telephone interview 
that his team has been 
struggling, so "we aren't 
going to do anything drastic 
for the Northwestern game. 

We will just try to continue improving all aspects of the 
offense, and hope our defense continues to perform 
well," he added. 

After serving as offensive coordinator at the 
University of Arkansas for the past two seasons, 
Beightol took the head job at Tech. He was one of some 
20 candidates considered by the six member athletic 
council at Tech. He had previously served as offensive 
line coach at William and Mary from 1968-71, offensive 
line coach and offensive coordinator at North Carolina 
State from 1972-75, and offensive coordinator at 
Auburn in 1976 before being appointed at Arkansas. 

Beightol's knowledge of what the State Fair game 
means is somewhat limited, but having never been 
associated with one before is reason enough. He does 

realize the the game is of particular importance to both 
the student bodies involved. 

"I am aware of what the Tech-Northwestern game 
means to the students," Beightol said. "But to me, it is 
just another football game. We will prepare no dif- 
ferently for this game than for any others." 

Succeeding the popular Lambright was not an easy 
endeavor. Maxie produced a 95-36-2 record during his 
twelve years at Tech, and Beightol was the first to admit 
he had a tough act to follow. 

"I'm aware of the tradition Coach Lambright set here 
and I intend to live up to that tradition," he stated. "I 
know I have a tough act to follow, but we're going to do 
whatever it takes to win." 

The recent Tech improvement on offense certainly 
had to make Beightol breathe a sigh of relief. His 
defense had been performing admirably, which he feels 
may be a key as the season progresses further. 

"If we can continue to improve on offense, we will be 
alright," he said. "Our defense has performed well, but 
we still need to improve all aspects of our team. I can 
see major improvements already," he added. 

Tech has now attempted more passes than any other 
team in the Southland Conference, but without regular 
starting quarterback Eric Barkley, their passing will 
almost indoubtedly suffer somewhat. But Beightol 
remains optimistic. 

"We have other kids who can throw the ball," 
Beightol stated. "We hated to see Eric make his 
decision, but our other kids will do the job." 

Beightol also said that he will continue to strive to 
establish the running game and mix up passes with the 
running to try and keep opposing defenses off balance. 
Should this be successful, he feels his offense will be in 
good shape. 

One thing is almost for sure. Though this may be his 
first State Fair game, after Saturday night he will most 
likely know what the game is all about. It should be 

Offense struggling, but better 

Barkley quits Tech squad 


RUSTON-It is the offense which 
a major problem for 




Louisiana Tech. The offense has 
been sub-par in the young season 
with the exception of their 17-0 
homecoming victory the University 
' of Southwestern Louisiana. The 
Bulldogs have been outscored 83-31 
(before the game with Arkansas 
State) with most of the damage 
"' 'coming in the second quarter when 
they have allowed 47 unanswered 
points. Their offense seemed to 
have changed for the better though 
against USL. Before then, Tech 
spent a month on the road and fell 
to a dismal 0-4 record. 
At home Bulldogs rolled up 355 
„•,., total yards verses the 'Cajuns as 
k n , fullback Jessie Clark rambled for 
£Q.* 1J0 yards in 19 carries. That was 
quite an effort by Clark and his 
offensive teammates considering 
...^they managed only three yards 
J: rushing the previous week against 
Miami of Florida. 

Injuries have hurt Tech's of- 
fensive production as Clark, last 
t ,^, year's "Freshman of the year" in 
the Southland Conference, 
damaged cartilage in his left knee in 
the opener at New Mexico. His 
effort in the USL game was his first 
effective day of running since his 

Running back George Yates, (6-1, 
201 Jr.) an all-Southland Con- 
ference selection on 1978, has also 
been injured but he and Clark are 
healthy now and that might prove to 
be an offensive plus for the Bulldogs 
according to Beightol: "It makes a 
difference in the attitude of our 
offensive line when you have Jessie 
and George Yates and there in the 
same backfield." The lineman know 
that if they can get a block we are 
going to make some yards with 
Clark and Yates. It is a great 
emotional boost." 

Two other backs are expected to 
help the Bulldogs Saturday night. 
Sophomore running back Rickey 
Johnson (5-11, 175) has gained 121 
yards on 15 carries for an 8.1 
avc-age per carry. At quarterback 
Tech will probably start freshman 
Matt Dunigan. Regular starter Eric 
Barkley quit the team after the USL 

Dunigan played three of Tech's 
first five games completing 6 of 17 
passes for 122 yards. "We are 
confident that Matt Dunigan can 
run offensive club," said Beightol. 
"He has been improving each 
opportunity and he is confident that 
he can do the job." 

The Bulldog's offense is also 
highlighted by flanker Freddie 

Brown. Brown came into the 
Arkansas State game with 12 cat- 
ches for 154 yards. 

Tech's split back set on offense 
can be operated effectively with the 
personnel they have. One key 
Saturday night will be how well their 
offensive line has developed to the 
system. A good effort on their part 
would provide an excellent 
challenge for NSU's "Tasmamian 
Devil" defense, and a good effort is 
what many expect Saturday night, a 
good effort by both teams. 

RUSTON- La. Tech will go the 
rest of the season without quar- 
terback Eric Barkley after the 
Shreveport sophomore decided to 
quit the team last Monday af- 

"We hated to see Eric make this 
decision but, frankly, it was not a 
big surprise," said Tech head coach 
Larry Beightol. 

"Eric had been unsettled and, I 
believe, unhappy much of the 

season," Beightol continued. "He 
had felt that his talents are not 
compatible with the offensive 
system we are now using and for this 
reason I believe his performance 
had suffered." 

Barkley had started four of 
Tech's first five games and com- 
pleted 46 of 93 passes for 400 yards 
with six interceptions and no 
touchdown throws. 

"We wish Eric well in the future 

as we feel he is a fine young man," 
Beightol concluded. 

The Tech coach announced that 
rookie Matt Dunigan of Dallas, 
Tex., will step into the starting role. 

The Bulldogs are still without the 
services of junior Mark Buchanan 
who had moved into the starting 
lineup only to suffer a serious 
ankle injury in that game. 

Buchanan may possibly be back 
in action within the next two weeks.

Freshman receives scholarship 
for consumer education project 



Helene Morgan of Baton Rouge, 
a feshman home economics 
education major, has received a 
$1,000 scholarship for a consumer 
education project she entered in 
competition at the National 4-H 
Congress in Chicago. 

Miss Morga, a 1979 Woodlawn 
High Scholl graduates and the 
daughter of Mr and Mrs. Falcon A. 
Morgan was one of six 4-H Club 
members who won scholarships 
presented by Mongtomery Ward 
and Company sponsor of the 
consumer education project. 

The NSU freshmen coed's award- 
winning project included teaching 
low income and elderly people how 
to get the most for their food dollar. 

She presented the program in 
conjunction with the East Baton 
Rouge Council on Aging. 

Miss Morgan's project also 
featured monthly bullentins 
focusing on plentiful foods that 
were better buys for the consumer. 
In addition, she developed a con- 
sumer education whorkshop plan 
for 4-H members and wrote and 
produced a radio program in which 
she presented a variety of tips for 

A four-year member of the 
Shamrock 4-H Club in Baton 
Rouge, Miss Morgan's consumer 
education project won top honors in 
local competition in East Baton 
Rouge Parish to advance to the state 
contest which was conducted in 
June at Louisiana State University. 

Consumer education project 
winners from all 50 states and the 
District of Columbia and Puerto 
Rico met in Chicago to have records 
of their projects evaluted. At the 
state level, winners are dtermined on 
the basis of scores from project 

record books 



Miss Morgan served as president 
of her 4-H Club in 1979 and two 
years ago was the state winner in 
community relations competition. 

Cheerleader tryouts 
scheduled in March 

Cheerleader tryouts at NSU will 
be conducted Mar. 8 in the 
university's Physical Education 
Majors Building. 

Fred C. Borsage, dean of students 
at NSU, said 10 schloarships valued 
at $500 a year will be awarded to 
students who are selected to serbe 
during the 1980-81 academic year as 
Northwestern cheerleaders. 

Cheerleaders tryouts at Nor- 
thwestern will include a skills 
demonstration evaluated by 
National Cheerleader Association 
instructors and a personal interview 
conducted by a team of NSU 
students and faculty members. 

Bosarge said applicants for 
cheerleader scholarships will be 
required to perform cheerleader 
routines of their choice, and all 
applicants are encouraged to include 
a demonstration of gymnastics skills 
in the routine.

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Strange twist 

There apparently is, on occasion, 
method to what seems to be the 
madness the State Board of Trustees 
turns out every month, at least as 
far as the K-Time policy issue is 
concerned. Last week, it looked like 
the Board was trying to wear the 
black hat and deny employees what 
was, and is, rightfully theirs. To be 
more specific, the Board placed a 
halt to the collection and use of K- 
Time by NSU employees, which in 
effect meant any overtime work by 
non-classified, 12-month salaried 
personnel would be rendered free of 
charge to the university. 

It looked like the Board was, to 
be blunt, sticking it to those folks 
who were under the K-Time system. 
They still had to do their work, even 
if it did involve overtime, because to 
neglect it wouldn't sit well with 
those who hire and fire. And if it 
was the misfortune of the employee 
to have to put in some overtime to 
get the job done, so be it, because 
the Board's moratorium cut off 
their overtime pay. 

But as some employees slowly 
simmered, the Board added a little 
fuel to the fire. ..or for the sake of 
accuracy, a United Press In- 
ternational story which appeared in 
last Wednesday's Alexandria Daily 
Town Talk did. The story, the 
details of which are on the front 
page of this week's Sauce, explained 
the reasons behind the Board's 
moratorium— reasons which were, to 
say the least, very well supported by 
the facts, which bordered on the 
spectacular. When you consider 
NSU had accumulated ten times as 
much K-Time as McNeese, the only 
other state university to use the K- 
Time system to compensate em- 
ployees, you begin to wonder. 

The numbers tell the story-and 
bring up some interesting questions. 
For example, consider the fact NSU 
employees accumulated more than 
86,000 hours worth of K-Time, 
valued at over $1 million (on paper, 
since no one can actually cash in 
their K-Time) by state auditors. 
Even more astounding is the fact 
that the two largest individual 
accumulations of compensatory 
time were built up by NSU president 
Dr. Rene Bienvenu and head 
football coach A.L. Williams. 
Bienvenu built up hours valued at 
$135,000 and Williams had time 
valued at $98,1 18... but then, 
considering the nature of their jobs, 
I guess it's not really too surprising 
at all. 

What is surprising is that .the 
23 system would allow such a buildup 
« to occur, and I really wonder if K- 


Time should be applied to personnel 
such as university presidents and 
football coaches, since much of 
their work is done after regular 
hours. I can't blame either for 
collecting what they were apparently 
legally entitled to, but I can wonder 
if maybe there shouldn't be more 
stringent guidelines as to who can 
and can't collect K-Time. 

The problem there is where do 
you draw the line? Do you stop at a 
certain salary level, say $20,000 per 
year, and assume anyone who gets 
more than that is being paid to put 
in those extra hours anyway? Or do 
you just go down the line and ar- 
bitrarily decide who gets it and who 

I don't know the answer, and at 
this point I doubt if the State Board 
does either. But there is no doubt 
that some changes are in order, and 
maybe this is the best time for the 
entire State Board system to 
establish a "uniform policy" for 
compensating employees for 
overtime work. 

The most spectacular aspect of 
the whole controversy, judging 
from the response of the media, is 
the fact that Williams, were he to 
choose to use his built up K-Time, 
could stay away from the job, 
legally, for nearly three and a half 
years. Several radio stations around 
the area, notably KEEL of 
Shreveport, focused on this fact in 
reporting the story to the public. I 
didn't hear it, but I was told a 
couple of the morning personalities 
were really having a belly laugh over 
the whole deal and it made NSU 
look bad. 

Now don't get me wrong-I'm 
attacking the system, not the man. 
It made us look bad, and surely 
didn't help Williams' image either. 
But the fact remains that NSU came 
out looking bad, for whatever 
reason, and damage was done. 

Maybe it sould have been. ..after 
all, it is hard to believe that two 
state universities (NSU, McNeese) 
of comparable size could use the 
same system of compensating 
employees and such a wide 
discrepancy result. McNeese built 
up $90,000 worth of K-Time since 
1972-NSU built up over ten times 
that, as I've already pointed out. So 
maybe we have a viable system, and 
the problem is rooted in how we 
interpret the guidelines... or maybe 
I'm somewhere out in left field 
trying to steal signs from a catcher. 

At any rate, it should be very 
interesting to see how the Board 
works this problem out. It seems to 
me they're damned if they do, and 
damned if they don't. 


Don 't rush 

If ever I wished I could get Emily 
Latella (of "Saturday Night Live") 
to write a guest editorial, this is the 
time. The subject? The proposed 
United States boycott of the 
Moscow Olympics. 

It amazes me that some people 
think we have to make a decision 
immediately, or even within a 
month, as President Carter has 
decided. I'll admit I do see his 
reasoning-put some pressure on 
Russia, and maybe get some action 
in the form of a withdrawal from 
Afghanistan. But on the other hand, 
why ruin a lifetime dream forsome 
kid from Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 
February when a little patience 
might save a lot of face, and keep 
the "American Dream" alive in the 
hearts of some of America's finest 
for as long as possible. 

My initial reaction was in favor of 
a boycott, but with reservations. 
For every person who says, "Let's 
tell those Commies what they can do 
with those stupid Games," I think 
of swimmers and sprinters and 
boxers and other athletes who say, 
"Let us go over there and beat the 
socks off those Russians and teach 
them a thing or two," or something 
to the effect. 

} But as soon as that thought 
escaped from my mind, another one 
(how's this for turning a phrase?) 
tugged at my heart. (Wee what I 
mean?). A little voice told me, 

"What about all those athletes? 
How can you deny them a chance to 
achieve a lifetiie goal?" 

Then I picked up this morning's 
paper, and back beind all the news 
about the Super Bowl and LSU in 
the sports segtion, there was a little 
wire service story about what Glynn 
Saulters thought the country should 
do regarding the Olympics. Ngw, 
for that to mean anything you first 
have to know Glynn Saulters was a 
member of the 1968 U.S. Olympic 
basketball team whicl won a gold 
medal. Glynn Saulters coached me 
in high school, ard I know how 
much that gold medal meant to him, 
and he really niver thought about 
winning a gold medal at the 
Olympics until he was invited to try 
out for the team. Some folks spend 
almost 5, 20 years working toward 
that one goal-to be an Olympic 

Anyway, Coach Saulters said he 
opposed a boycott, and he has been 
there, and has lived a better life for 
his experience. So I attach a lot of 
weight to his opinion. 

Even with that, from a man I 
know and respect, I still am not sure 
how I feel. And objectively, I think 
it is still way to early for anyone to 
deny these kids a chance. But if the 
situation stays the same, or worsens, 
there is really no doubt what we 
should do. 

Time will tell. Let this thing run 
its course, and let's not rush into 
any rash decisions we might regret 
for years to come. 

Don 't overlook true Olympics 

by Buddy W ood 
Sauce sports editor 

With all the fuss over the United 
States unable to make a decision as 
to whether to boycott the Summer 
Olympics in Moscow or not, it 
seems tragic that a political issue 
would have to over-shadow the true 
meaning of what the Olympics are 
"supposed" to be all about. 

President Carter and his ad- 
ministration are stiffening daily in 
regards to using the 1980 Olympics 
as a weapon in response to the 
Soviet Union's intervention in 
Afghanistan. So, in return, he is 
also using every hard-working, 
ambitious athlete from the US who 
was to participate in the world-wide 
games. That's where the tragic 
parts come into the picture. 

While the Soviets continue to 
move deeper and deeper into the 
heart of Afghanistan, the Olympic 
games seem to be moving farther 
and farther from the hearts of 
Americans, some because they agree 
with the administration in saying 
that we should boycott the games, 
and some because they have let the 
whole issue completely reverse their 
minds into believing the Olympics 
has been a political tool all along. 

Just think if you were, say, a long 
jumper, and you had worked and 
worked for the last four years 
improving and dedicating yourself 
to winning a medal in the Olympics. 
One day you're all fired up about 
going to Moscow to compete in the 

Games, to meet the various types of 
people, to make new acquaintances, 
and to fulfill your life-long dream. 
Suddenly, you hear on the news that 
the US has decided to boycott the 
Olympics because of the Soviet 
intervention. Not only does that 
crush your dream, but it also makes 
you wonder if you were really right 
as to what the Olympics were all 

It has been said that a solution 
might be to shift the Games to 
another city, but that would require 
a decision by the International 
Olympic Committee to do so, and 
the chances for that to happen are 

Should the games be shifted, 
however, it would only make 
matters worse. The Soviet Union 
would then boycott a revised 
Games, as would their allies as well 
as nonaligned countries unwilling to 
risk Moscow's disfavor. The result 
would be even more of a farce, 
appearing more as a world 
championship than as an Olympic 
games, which would totally destroy 
the Games meanings. 

My contention is that we search 
ourselves for the real meaning of the 
Olympic Games. Why should a 
political matter be allowed to 
destroy something that has been 
part of the world for the last 100 

And while we are thinking about, 
keep in mind all the dreams and 
ambitions that are being overlooked 
in regards to boycotting or not. Is it 

fair to take someone's goals away 
that easily? It seems to me as 
though it is almost, in the true sense 
of the word, Robbery. Didn't 
robbery used to be against the law? 
Well my voice will certainly not 

be heard by many, but I think we all 
need to realize just what our leaders 
are doing behind the scenes a little 
more. The Olympics are a sacred 
thing to most, but to some they are 
merely another political toy. 

Monday blues 

by Doug Ireland 
Sauce Editor 

It was a vintage Monday mor- 
ning, complete with fog, rain, and a 
big case of the Monday Morning 
Blues. other words, I knew it 
was paste-up day for the Sauce. 

To the uninitiated, paste-up 
sounds something like what we used 
to do in kindergarten with crayons 
and scissors and cardboard paper. I 
know, because until last year, I 
could count myself among the very 
unitiated, as far as newspaper 
publishing is concerned. All I knew 
about putting together a paper was 
what I'd heard from the folks at the 
Jackson Independent, the weekly 
newspaper in my home town of 

So one day I woke up and 1 was 
editor, with all sorts of problems 
and hassles, right Not quite. ..I had 
to remind myself who got me in this 
mess in the first place... and then I 
had to figure out some way to get 
done what had to be done to gel the 
paper together. 

But back to paste-up, before 1 
really confuse you. The paper 
you're reading just didn't fall in 

place, we had to piece it together. 
And to piece it together, we first had 
to have enough copy to fill it up. 
Usually, that's the least of my 
problems, but as always seems to 
happen, some weekend develop- 
ments created some last-minute 
obstacles we had to overcome. We 
did make do, though, (at least I 
hope so, because as I type this into 
my video terminal at 10 a.m. 
Monday morning the situation 
looks close to ... pardon the pun ... 
being terminal) as best we could. 

So why do you want to hear (or 
read) about my problems" I really 
don't know, and I really don't think 
you do, because I'm sure you have 
your own to worry about. But I sat 
down here a little on the Monday 
morning side of things, and I had to 
blow off a little steam. 

So as you struggle through this 
mumbo-jumbo which has my name 
at the top of it, just try to un- 
derstand. ..after all, if I'm half as 
messed-up and confused as this 
column is, it might be time for an 
all-expense paid trip to Pineville.

Little J.P. big on field 

Northwestern's defensive secondary, and especially 
strong safety J.P. Dunbar, have been saddled with the 
tag of "too small" for the past couple of football 

It's a tag that is momentarily forgotten after the type 
of performance that Dunbar and his mates have put on 
recently. Against Northeast, the senior standout picked 
off two passes and led the unit to four thefts against the 

"Everybody's been telling me all year that J.P. and 
the others in our secondary are too small to play 
collegiate ball," said NSU defensive backfield coach 
Don Guidry. "But they don't believe that. Heck, I 
think sometimes J.P. thinks he's 6-foot-3 or something 
like that." 

a senior three- year letterman from 
isn't one of the bigger defensive backs 
at only 5 

foot-9 and 160 pounds. However, the two-yer starter 
has an uncanny knack for being round the football. 

"J.P. makes up what he lacks in size with intelligence 
and good football sense," Guidry said. "He knows 
defensive football, and he plays with a great deal of 

That desire come through in NSU's outing against the 
Indians in the Demons' Homecoming contest, when he 
stopped two NLU drives with interceptions. Those 
thefts included one with less tht 40 seconds left that 
prevented a possible touchdown and helped the Demons 
hang on to a 20-14 victory. 

"J.P. was in the right places when we needed him," 
Guidry added. He ended the night with eight solo 
tackles to go with the two thefts. 

"We put in a new defense in the spring," Guidry said, 
"and J.P. had to adapt a great deal because it com- 
pletely changed the role of the strong safety. He doesn't 
have nearly as much run responsibility now, but he has 
much more pass coverage duties and he has to read pass 
patterns much more quickly that in our old defense." 
A four-year letterman in football, basketball and 
ack and field at Delcambre High School, Dunbar 
'ayed quarterback and safety under high school 
football coach and father Don Dunbar and earned All- 
State, All-Acadiana, All-Parish and All-District honors

Demon Darlin 
tryout Oct. 20 

by Don Hudson 
Sauce Staff 

For the past eight years Louisiana Tech 
football teams have outscored Nor- 
thwestern squads 263 to 92 and have 
defeated the Demons eight consecutive 
times in the annual State Fair Classic. 
The Bulldogs lead the series with NSU 44- 

The past two seasons the Bulldogs have 
captured the Southland Conference 
Championship and have participated in 
the first and second Independence Bowls 
in Shreveport, winning in 1977 24-14 over 
the University of Louisville and dropping 
last years's game to East Carolina 35-13. 

In last year's State Fair contest, the 
Bulldogs rolled to 45 straight points in the 
first three periods to crush the Demons 
for the eighth consecutivetime, 45-20. 

The Demons offense was held to 145 
total yards as quarterbacks Kenny 
Philibert and Rex Henderson accounted 
for only 96 passing yards on eigth 
completion. The Demons much-heralded 
running back Joe Delaney was held to 12 
yards on nine carries. 

But this season the Demons, 2-2, come 
into the State Fair clash Saturday night 

against the Bulldogs, 1-5 with a strong 
possibilty of ending that eight consecutive 
year victory streak. 

The Techsters are in a rebuilding season 
under new head coach Larry Beightol. 
The 'Dogs have been outscored by a 97-38 
margin and have been shutout twice. 

Both teams dropped their last games. 
The Demons fell to Southeastern 33-7 
while the Bulldogs lost a squeaker to 
Arkansas State 14-7. 

The Tech offense is lead by running 
backs George Yates (6-1, 201, Jr) and 
Jessie Clark (6-0, 219 Soph). Yates was 
an All-Southland Conference selection in 
1978. He rusehd for 637 yards on 155 
carries and grabbed 20 passes for 217 
yards last season and scored 10 touch- 
downs. He scored two touchdowns 
against NSU last season, along with 70 
yards on 16 carries. 

Either sophomore Mark Buchanan, a 
converted tight end who has been injured, 
or freshman Matt Dunigan will start at 
the quarterback slot for the Bullgogs. 
Regular quarterback Eric Barkley quit the 
team two weeks ago. 

"We are confident that either can run 
our offensive club," said Beightol. "We 
have been improving each week and I am 

confident that we can score. ' ' 

After five games, freshman Freddie 
Brown paced the Bulldogs receiving corps 
with 12 catches for 154 yards. 

The Bulldogs' defensive standout A1I- 
American honorable mention Jimmy 
Blackshire, left the team this summer. 
Blackshire, who said he was tired of 
football was an All-Conference selection 
last year for the second consecutiveyear. 
He led the team in tackles in 1978 with 

Now the Bulldogs lean on two juniors, 
linebacker Marshall Cowley (6-2, 204) 
and defensive tackle Johnny Robinson (6- 
2 , 260). Senior free safety Jean Dornier 
has picked off five passes, four in one 
game, to head the deep back corps. 

The Demons showed poor per- 
formances last week in Southeastern. 
Delaney, who two weeks earlier rushed 
for 157 yards on 21 carries and one 
touchdown against Northeast, carried 
eight times for 15 yards. The Demons 
only picked up 1 1 total net yards on the 

SLU accumulated 389 total yards 
against the Demon defense, 338 rushing 
and 51 passing. The Lions only attempted 
nine passes in the game while running off 
27 first downs. 

Philibert's passing a bright spot for the 
Demons in the contest, completing 12 of 
17 passes, suffering one interception. 
Philibert has passed for 412 yards on the 
season and three touchdowns. He has hit 
on 44 of 67 passes, and had 5 picked off. 

Receivers Barry Rubin and Randy Liles 
both grabbed five passes in the game. 
Liles hauled in a 55 yard Philibert bomb 
for the only NSU score. Rubin continues 
to lead the Demons in receiving with 1 ! 
receptions for over 100 yards. 

The Demon defense is paced by safeties 
Darrell Toussaint and J.P. Dunbar, and 
linebackers David Wright. 

Kickoff in Shreveport 's State Fair 
Stadium is scheduled for 7:30. Tickets 
can be picked up with the presentation of 
an NSU ID at the ticket window at the 
NSU fieldhouse from 8 a.m. until 4:30 
p.m. through Friday. A crowd of over 
23,000 is expected for the 65th meeting of 
the two schools, and the Demons can 
claim the mythical North La. Cham- 
pionship with a win. 

TAAC acceptance draws approval 

Northwestern's acceptance into the 
Trans America Conference will result in 
more incentive for NSU athletes, several 
Demon coaches said late last week. 

The Trans America Conference, 
formed just over one year ago, already 
has made several steps towards automatic 
qualification for the NCAA Division I 
basketball tournament, and already had 
last year's conference basketball champ, 
Northeast Louisiana, invited to the 
National Invitational Tournament. 

The conference roundball champion is 
decided by a tournament at the end of 
loop play, and the regular season winner 
gets an automatic bye into the semifinal 
game in the meet. 

The regular season basketball com- 
petition is set up on a round-robin basis, 
but the other five conference sports titles 
are determined strictly by tournament 

The opportunity to possibly receive a 
NIT or NCAA playoff bid excites Demon 
basketball coach Tynes Hildebrand. "The 
big thing for our mens' basketball 
program has to be the chance of winning a 
bid to the NCAA's or the NIT," he said. 
"Additionaly, this conference affiliation 
has several other advantages for all five 

Trans American sanctioned sports-golf, 
tennis, baseball, cross-country, and 
basketball-that we participate in." 

Hildebrand explained, "The TAAC 
will help us in recruiting, since all spring 
sports and my program will have the 
chance to go to playoffs, and to shoot for 
a conference championship. The chance 
to win a title means a lot to quality high 
school players." 

"Our basketball competition will 
improve, because we already have strong 
rivalries with Northeast and Centenary 
and they will increase since they will now 
be our conference foes," he said. "The 
coaches and athletic directors of all these 
schools in the TAAC aare good people, 
and they all have solid programs, even 
though a few are not really well known 
around here, like Georgia Southern." 

Georgia Southern, located in 
Statesboro, Ga., has exceptionally strong 
golf and baseball programs. Both sports 
find their teams ranked in the among the 
top teams in the nation each year. 

The Eagle golf team has earned a bid to 
the NCAA tournament for eight straight 
years, an achievement matched only by 
Wake Forest. The baseball team has 
received several invitations to the NCAA 

total, while freshman Chris 
Roper shot a 76-85-161 for 
second spot for the Demons 
after holding the tour- 
nament lead after the first 
day of competition. 

Other NSU scores in- 
cluded Paul Day with an 8 1 - 
81-162, Ken Parr with an 
81-82-163, David Gold- 
stein with an 80-84-164, 
Doyle Andersen with an 83- 
81-164, Charles Ingalls 
with a 87-82-169, Greg 
Vesey with an 86-87-173 
and Chris Waters with an 

"I'm happy with the way 
we played," said NSU golf 
coach Dr. Derwood Duke. 
"We should have played as 
well the second day as we 
did the first, but we showed 
some signs of competing 
with quality teams." 

The Demons are com- 
peting in the Arkansas- 
Little Rock tournament this 
week in their final outing of 
the abbreviated 1979 fall

Members of the NSU cross country competing this season include (I. 
to r.) Winded Bonner, senior from Minden; Doug Burch, sophomore

Tryouts for the Little 
Demon Darlins' basketball 
ball handling and drill 
team, sponsored by the 
Northwestern Lady Demon 
basketball squad, will be 
held Saturday, Oct. 20, at 
10 a.m. in Prather 
Coliseum on the NSU 

Pat Nolen, coordinator 
of women's athletics at 
NSU, said that the tryouts 
are open to all girls in the 
fourth, fifth and sixth 
grades, and those selected 
will perform at halftime of 
all ten Lady Demon 
basketball games during the 
1979-80 season. 

"We'll be selecting 15 
girls for the team," Nolen 
said, "and they will be 
selected on the basis of coo- 

rdination and ball handling 
ability. Each of the girls 
will also have a 'big Sis' 
from our varsity basketball 
squad who will help them 
during the season in im- 
proving their skills, so I'm 
hoping it will be an en- 
joyable experience for the 
girls we choose." 

After the group is 
selected, they will practice 
weekly routines to perform 
at home games, beginning 
Nov. 16 when the Lady 
Demons open their 1979-80 
season against Xavier

regional championships, including a bid 
last year. In 1973, Ga. Southern advanced 
to the College World Series. 

Ed Spurlock, student assistant baseball 
coach, aid he felt the conference was a 
good thing for NSU. "It should be 
beneficial to the university because in 
future years, the championship tour- 
nament may be played here due to our 
excellent facilities. Baseball wise, we get 
to compete this spring, and we thing can 
contend right away for the conference 
title with our good pitching staff. 

Track coach Jerry Dyes was pleased 
with the conference tie-in by NSU. "It 
provides something special for the kids to 
strive for. It was a good moe by our 
athletic department. As far as track is 
concerned, our athletes really need 
something to work for besides the NCAA 
championships, because only a select few 
make it that far. It would be great to be 
conference champs." 

The TAAC, headquartered in 
Shreveport, does not conduct cham- 
pionships in women's athletics at the 
present, but conference commissioner 
Bob Banatta said there are "preliminary 
discussions in that direction." 

Pat Nolen, NSU's Coordinator of 
Womens Athletics and head coach of the 
Lady Demons, was unsure about what the 
TAAC might mean to her programs. 

"Right now, I don't tink we are eligible to 
compete in the conference. In my 
opinion, if the conference did establish a 
tournament for the womens sports, we 
could participate only if it is sanctioned 
by the AIAW (Association of In- 
tercollegiate Athletics for Women). We 
are under thier jurisdiction, so we can't 
do anything like that without their ap- 

NSU President Dr. Rene Bienvenu 
answered a few questions last Saturday 
night, when in an interview with KNOC's 
George Cook at halftime of the NSU-SLU 
football game he refused to rule out the 
chance NSU might eventually get into a 
football conference. 

"Right now, there is not a league that 
fits our needs," Bienenu said, but if some 
things develop in the next few years like 
we expect them to, we might be in a 
football conference with some other area 
teams. We certainly are looking in that 
direction, but right now, we feel we are at 
the right place in the TAAC." 

Informed sources said that probably 
will not happen for at least two years, 
since the NSU football program is 
classified in Division 1-AA and there are 
but 38 1-AA schools presently nation- 
wide. A manditory reclassificationof 
Division I schools by the NCAA is ex- 
pected in less than four years. 

Harriers win own meet 

Northwestern's cross country squad 
used an overall balanced effort to take top 
honors in its own Invitational Cross 
Country Meet here Friday afternoon. 

The Demons scored 42 points in the 
meet to edge out the 43-point total of 
Northeast Louisiana in the three-team 
meet. Southwestern La., which grabbed 
four of the top eight positions, only had 
four runners compete with at least five 
required to be eligible for team honors. 

USL's Gerry Papion took individual 
honors with a 30:03 clocking over the six- 
mile Natchitoches Fish Hatchery course, 
while Northwestern's Billy Green finished 

second with a 30:35 clocking to pace the 
winning Demon effort. 

Northeast grabbed third and fourth 
slots individually with Tommy Dunn and 
Jim Pyle clocking 30:56 and 31:02 
respectively, while USL's Carl Breaux 
turned in a 3 1 :03 for fifth. 

The Demons took a seventh and swept 
the tenth through twelfth places in 
building their winning total. Burt Gilson 
was runner-up for NSU, taking that 
seventh in 31:38.

Flag football ends 

The top two teams advance to the championship 
game to be played at Harry "Rags" Turpin Stadium. 

Men's Division 


This fall's intramural flag football season came to a 
close last Friday. In the women's division Phi Mu will 
meet VIP's no. 1 in a showdown to be played at Turpin 
Stadium soon. The men began their playoff action 
yesterday as three teams from the Fraternity-Purple 
division began a sudden-death playoff to decide the 
second place team in that division. 

Kappa Sigma no. 1 took first place in the Fraternity- 
Purple division with a perfect 3-0 mark but the 
remaining three teams finished 1-2. Yesterday, Theta 
Chi was to play Kappa Alpha no. 2 and the winner 
would meet Sig Tau Gamma today. The eventual winner 
would represent the division as the second place team. 

In the Fraternity-Orange division, Phi Beta Sigma 
finished in first place with a record of 4-0. Kappa Alpha 
no. 1 came in second with a 3-1 mark. 

Over in the Independent-Purple division, the first two 
teams were the Steelers and the Condors. The Steelers 
were undefeated (6-0) and the Condors dropped their 
last two games to finish 4-2. 

The Jocks were the front runners in the Independent- 
Orange with a 5-1 record. They were followed by 
Brotherhood at 4-1. 

In Monday's games Louisiana Hall forfieted to VIP's 
no. 1, Kappa Alpha no. 1 used a balanced attack to 
defeat Cossa's Bandits 20-0, the Rapides Bullets upset 
the Condors (last year's independent champs) 18-12, the 
Jocks whipped the Rough Riders 16-0, Kappa Alpha no. 
2 bombed Sig Tau Gamma 26-6 as Butch Brossett and 
Bill Corry each scored two touchdowns. Phi Beta Sigma 
blanked TKE 6-0 as Donald Jackson crossed the goal 
with the games only score. 

Tuesday's action sent the University of Yang home to 
listen to this year's championship game on the radio as 
they lost to the Steelers 20-0 and finished out of con- 
tention in third place. In other games; Sig Tau Gamma 
got all of its scoring from no. 5 Thomas as they edged 
Theat Chi 16-14, the King Pins exploded past the Rough 
Riders 28-6 as left cornerback Kenny Terrell picked-off 
two passes and danced to the end zone to aid in the win. 

Margo Young scored eight points as Phi Mu downed 
Sigma Kappa 14-6. Tri Sigma shutout Delta Zeta 16-0, 
and the Unknowns blitzed VIP no. 2 50-0 with Terri 
Jenkins responsible for 26 points. 

Katrina Meyers rambled for three touchdowns as 
VIP's no. 1 ran-away-from the Hot Dogs 22-6. The 
Cougars were victorious 10-0 against the short-handed 
(they brought only five players) Glove Club, while 
Kappa Alpha no. 1 received scoring from seven dif- 
ferent players as they annihilated Kappa Alpha no. 2 54- 

The action picked up again on Thursday as eight 
teams meet in season finales. Brotherhood dropped 
Conine 18-6, Tri-Sigma slipped past AKA 6-0, the Jocks 
trounced the King Pins 28-0, and the Steelers nipped the 
Condors 9-8 in overtime.

iDr. Bienvenu: 

Do the football and basketball 
fcoaches get to eat lunch free of 
{charge in Iberville Cafeteria? They 
do not present a meal ticket nor do 
jthey pay for the meal at the meal 
j ticket puncher's table. If so, should 
I this be allowed to continue? Also, 
1 what about the women house 
| directors? Do they get to eat a free 
I meal? 

1 A. The football and basketball 

■ coaches do not eat free meals in 
1 Iberville Cafeteria. A tally is 

■ maintained on the meals they eat in 
a the Cafeteria, and they are billed 
I separately at a later date. The 
I women house directors do obtain 
1 meals at no charge since this 

'presents part of their salary as 
l rac yment-in-kind. 

i Dr. Bienvenu: 

Why is it that the Greek students 
I are given the best seats in the 

student section at NSU football 
I games, on the student side, even 

though they comprise only about 20 
I percent of the student population. I 
| know that many of us who are not 
I affiliated with any of the Greek 

organizations are stuck with seats 
| on one end of the stands, and seats 
| that are high up in the stands. Is this 

a case of minority rule? 

A. It is my understanding that 
organizations, Greek and otherwise, 
have been seated in the lower section 
of the East side of the stadium. 
Frankly, it is a matter of opinion 
that the low seats in the stadium are 
the worst seats rather than the best. 
Students also have access to what I 
consider to be the best seats in the 
stadium, which are those in the 
upper deck on the West side. I really 
don't consider a request by any 
organization to sit together at the

Dr. Bienvenu: 

I was in Iberville Dining Hall last 
Monday night, enjoying our 
Midnight Breakfast, when a bunch 
of inconsiderate and selfish 
fraternity "men", along with some 
of NSU's supposed student leaders, 

I instigated a food fight that ruined a 
great activity. I was very offended 
that college students have to 
emulate their heroes in the movies in 
their attempts, however futile, to be 
accepted in a peer group. It was a 
disgraceful thing for NSU, and I 
want to know your understanding 
of thrs^4p c 'dent and if any 
disciplinary action will be taken 

I against those who were behind it? 

I A. I was greatly displeased by the 
wood fight which occurred at the 
■Midnight Breakfast. As I have said 
Ion many occasions, I would hope 
Jhat our students' behavior on the" 
fcampus would reflect their 
flbehavior patterns in their own 

homes. Since it has not been 
possible to find out who initiated 
She event, I suppose I will be unable 
j to assess those individuals as far as 
Bheir pattern of life is concerned. I 
Hjave been told that members of the 
jSGA did a most commendable job

Treen wins in primary election, 
Fitz and Lambert close behind 

Jimmy Fitzmorris 

Louis Lambert 

Republican Congressman Dave 
Treen was able to sit back and relax 
Monday as Lt. Gov. Jimmy Fitz- 
morris and Public Service Com- 
mission Chairman Louis Lambert 
both claimed they had won the 
second spot in the Dec. 8 runoff 
election for Louisiana's gover- 

Fitzmorris held the number two 
position in the race with all final, 
unofficial returns in from the state's 
2,899 precincts, while Lambert 
trailed by a margin of about 1,500 
votes. Treen was virtually assured 
of a position on the runoff ballot, as 
he held a lead of over 18,000 votes 
over Fitzmorris. 

Secretary of State Paul Hardy ran 
fourth, while Speaker of the House 
Bubba Henry and state Sen. Edgar 
Mouton were outdistanced in fifth 
and sixth positions, respectively. 

A record voter turnout of 1.35 
million cas f lots for all statewide 
offices and all legislative seats, in 
the state's first open primary ever. 
There were reports of confusion at 
the polls in some areas over the new 
open primary law, which allows 
voters to cast their ballot for any 
candidate regardless of party af- 

The final, unofficial returns 
showed Treen with 297, 177 votes, 
or 21.9 percent; Fitzmorris 280,490, 
or 20.6 percent; Lambert 279,014, 
or 20.5 percent; Hardy 224,677, or 
16.5 percent; Henry 135,109, or 9.9 
percent; and Mouton with 123,124, 
or 9.0 percent. 

Lambert, who spent an estimated 
$4 million in the most expensive 
non-Presidential campaign in 
American history, refused to 
concede defeat. 

Employee dismissed 
after NSU label abuse 

by Mike ( .allien 
Sauce Focus Editor 

An unidentified university em- 
ployee has been dismissed from the 
computer center in connection with 
the alumni label scandal, according 
to a university spokesman. 

The employee was familiar with 
the computer set-up at the university 
and was able to tap the confidential 
alumni information. The computer 
labels were used in the Russell Cook 
campaign for the state represen- 
tative post held by Rep. Jimmy 
Long. Long defeated Cook in the 
first primary by a two-to-one 

Spokesmen for the Cook cam- 
paign denied having any knowledge 
of how the labels were obtained and 
apologized to the university for 
dragging the school into the 
campaign. Reliable sources told the 
Sauce the computer center employee 
was involved with the Cook cam- 
paign, although the extent of which 
was not known. 

NSU President Rene Bienvenu 
said, "The investigation has been 
completed and appropriate action 
has been taken. The individual 
involved has been dismissed." 

When asked to divulge the 
identity of the employee, Dr. 
Bienvenu replied, "It is not our 
policy to release the names of 
dismissed employees. Let it suffice 
to say that the person responsible 
has been dismissed." 

A spokesman for the computer 
center said steps have been taken to 
prevent similar incidents in the 
future. According to the 
spokesman, tighter security 
measures will be enforced in the 

Dr. Bienvenu added, "I'm really 
sorry this had to happen and I'm 
sure the person involved regrets it. 
You know, we all make mistakes. 
This was just a case of using poor 

Asked if other leaks of con- 
fidential information were likely, 
Dr. Bienvenu said, "I'm satisfied 
that there will be no other leaks. 
Steps have been taken to assure that 
and I'm confident that they will be 

Dr. Bienvenu closed, "This has 
been a very unfortunate situation. 
I'm just glad we found the in-

Brothers lectures here 
in series next Tuesday 

Dr. Joyce Brothers, a noted 
psychologist and columnist, will 
speak next Tuesday, Nov. 6, in 
Northwestern A. A. Fredericks Fine 
Arts Center Auditorium. 

The speaking appearance by Dr. 
Brothers is being sponsored by the 
NSU Distinguished Lecture Series 
and is open to the public without 
charge. The lecture program begins 
at 9:30 a. m T 

Dr. Brothers, who is also a well 
known business consultant and 
author, is an NBC Radio Network 
personality and consistently is listed 
in George Gallup's annual poll of 
the most admired women. 

A United Press International poll 
named her one of the 10 most in- 
fluential American women, and a 

survey conducted by the Greenwich 
College Research Center listed her 
among the 10 women most admired 
by college students. 

Good Housekeeping magazine 
rated Dr. Brothers in a 10th place tie 
with Golda Meir of Israel in a poll 
to determine the "women in the 
world most admired." 

Northwestern 's guest lecturer 
broadcasts on NBC Radio Net- 
work's "Newsline" program 
Mondays through Fridays. 

Dr. Brothers is a regular 
columnist for Good Housekeeping 
magazine and writes a daily column 
that is published in more than 350 
newspapers. Her books have been 
translated into 26 languages. 

"Until we get the official count, 
we won't know who is going to be in 
the runoff," Lambert said early 
Sunday. "We're going to continue 
our operations as if we are going 
into the election. We feel at this 
point that we're going to be in the

today when parish clerks of court

totals. Official tabulations are 
expected to be completed by 

Fitzmorris and Treen claimed 
victory in early Sunday speeches to 
their supporters in New Orleans 
hotels. Both said they looked 
forward to a clean, issue-oriented 

Hardy would not formally 
concede the election, and said he 
would personally inspect the returns 
in his official capacity as secretary 
of state. 

In a 3:30 Sunday morning speech 
in Baton Rouge, Hardy read his 
daily horoscope which said, "You 
will win under unusual cir- 

"I will check the results. They 
will be absolutely, technically 
perfect before I will certify them," 
Hardy said. 

Hardy and Henry indicated they 
will endorse candidates in the runoff 
election. Observers expect Hardy to 
endorse Fitzmorris and Henry to 
back Treen. 

"This has got to be one of the 
most unusual primaries in state 
history," said Fitzmorris, who 
watched the lead see-saw for eight 

There were many reports of 
mostly minor election law violations 
across the state, and Republican 
officials were complaining Treen 
lost many votes due to confusion at 
the polls. 

Ron Brun, chairman of the 
Republicans' ballot security 
committee, said there were many 
reports from around the state of 
polling commissioners who in- 
formed voters that if they were 
Democratic, they could not vote for 
Treen since he is a Republican. 

Most commissioners apparently 
were trying to explain that 
Democrats couldn't vote in the 
Republican party elections or vice 
versa, Brun said. Commissioners 
could adjust the machines to block 
crossing lines for party offices, such 
as state central committee, but not 
for public offices. 

Treen said he would give im- 

mediate priority to educating 
Democrats--who outnumber 
Republicans 18 to 1 in Louisiana- 
that they can vote for him in the 
runoff election. 

"Our projections showed that 
nine percent of the voters felt they 
had to vote for Democrats," Treen 
reported. "Even if half that 
number, 4.5 percent, were under 
that impression, it would have been 
an appreciable vote loss." 

Fitzmorris expressed hope that 
the runoff would be more partisan, 
with a "lot of Democrats closing 
ranks" behind his candidacy, in- 
cluding Gov. Edwin Edwards, who 
expressed no preference in the 

"I think you'll find Democrats 
getting behind the Democratic 
candidate and I think you'll find a 
lot of Republicans getting behind 
the Republican candidate. I think 
that's a healthy position," Fitz- 
morris said. 

Fitzmorris was also critical of the 
amount of money spent cam- 
paigning for the governor's chair, 
and credited New Orleans Mayor 
Ernest Morial, with "standing tall" 
and endorsing Fitzmorris, a 
Crescent City native. 

Lambert concedes Treen victory, 
claims second spot still in doubt 

by Doug Ireland 
Sauce Editor 

Louis Lambert was willing to 
concede Dave Treen the top position 
in Saturday's gubernatorial 
primary, but he wasn't ready to 
throw in the towel in the battle for 
the second spot in the Dec. 8 runoff. 

"I would not rule out anything," 
Lambert maintained Sunday, even 
though unofficial returns showed 
him trailing Jimmy Fitzmorris by 
1,476 votes in the race for the 
runner-up position. 

"I am willing to wager that there 
are going to be some changes in the 
final results," the Public Service 
Commission chairman said. "We 
feel at this point that we're going to 
be in a runoff." 

Lambert admitted Treen had the 
top spot wrapped up, but said he 
would have "a team of lawyers" in 
each of Louisiana's 64 parish 
courthouses today to check the 
totals when voting machines are 
opened. Official results are not 
expected to be announced before 

"I don't anticipate any legal 
challenge," said a confident Fitz- 
morris, who once lost a New 
Orleans mayor's race by 200 votes. 

"Oh, the votes will be checked and 
rechecked, and in those checks and 
rechecks we're going to gain a few 
and lose a few." 

Robert Hughes, director of the 
elections division of the secretary of 
state's office, said official 
tabulations rarely are more than a 
few hundred votes off unofficial 
returns because there are offsetting 
mistakes. However, he said official 
returns have varied as much as 3,000 
votes from unofficial returns. 

"I don't know if all the absentee 
ballots were counted in every 
precinct, for example," Hughes 
explained. Other common mistakes 
include transposed numbers, he 

"You don't know the results until 
you get the official tally," Hughes 

"We're concerned about fairness- 
-no more, no less," Lambert told 
newsmen. "We're not pointing the 
finger at anyone at this time. We 
feel our position is just as good as 
Fitzmorris' position. It's so close, 
it's almost like flipping a coin 
between us." 

Lambert held the lead during 
much of Saturday night as the 
returns pouted in, and until early 
Sunday morning it appeared he was 

assured of a position in the runoff 
election. He held as much as a 
14,000 vote lead over Treen in what 
appeared to be a battle for second 
behind Fitzmorris, but late night 
returns from rural areas swung the 
balance in favor of Treen, and the 
Republican surged into the top spot. 

"Louisiana, as you know, has a 
history of irregularities in elec- 
tions," Lambert reminded listeners. 
"I think we're in the midst of some 
of that now. There was a vote- 
buying thing in Acadia Parish, in 
Rayne. There's a trial in Lake 
Charles that's going on. I think the 
people of this state deserve to know 
that everything is done on top of the 

Treen refused to predict whom his 
opponent in the runoff would be, 
saying "I'd prefer not to 

Treen predicted that more em- 
phasis will be on issues in the 
runoff, explaining "it is difficult 
with six candidates running to focus 
on issues." 

"If my opponent is Mr. Lambert, 
I think issues will play a larger role 
than with Mr. Fitzmorris because

Voter turnout heavy 
in statewide primary 

by David La V ere 
• Sauce News Editor 

An estimated 1.35 million of 1.9 
million registered Louisiana voters 
went out to the polls Saturday in the 
largest turn-out of voters in state 

Besides voting for governor, 
voters also had to choose persons 
for Lt. Governor, Secretary of 
State, Attorney General, Treasurer, 
Superintendent of Education, 
Commissioner of Agriculture, 
Commissioner of Insurance, 
Commissioner of Elections, and a 
multitude of parish and district 
offices. Many of the offices will be 
filled after a run-off election is held 
on Dec. 8. 

For Lt. Governor, James J. 
Donelon and Robert L. "Bobby" 
Freeman will be in the run-off. 
Freeman took a majority of the 
votes, totaling 507,970 or 43.2 
percent, while Donelon came away 
with 303,413 votes or 25.8 percent. 
These totals are with 94.6 percent of 
the precincts recorded. 

With 93.9 percent of the precincts 
in, it appears that Sandra Thomp- 
son and Jim Brown will face each 
other in the run-off for the 
Secretary of State position. Ms. 
Thompson has received 465,162 

percent of the votes so far, while 
Brown had 348,637 or 31 percent. 

Incumbent William Guste will 
return to his Attorney General 
position, narrowly escaping a run- 
off with challenger Eddie Knoll, the 
District Attorney for Avoyelles 
Parish. Guste chalked up 649,120 
votes or 58.8 percent, while Knoll 
came up with 454,504 or 41 percent, 
with 93.7 percent of the precincts in. 

Mary Evelyn Parker, with 
886,168 or 81.2 percent of the votes 
landslided over Ken Pickering, who 
had 204,261 or 18.7 percent, and 
will again take her seat as Treasurer, 
with 93.2 percent of the precincts 

Kelly Nix and Thomas Clausen 
will be in the run-off, each fighting 
for the Superintendent of 
Education's position. Nix came 
away with 5.19,184 or 47.5 percent 
of the votes, while Clausen ac- 
cumulated 281,389 or 25.7 percent. 
Both men beat out NSU's own Dr. 
C.B. "Lum" Ellis, who came in 
third with 192,655 or 17.6 percent, 
with only 93.6 percent of the 
precincts recorded. 

Bob Odom and incumbent Gil 
Dozier will face each other in the 
run-off for Commissioner of 
Agriculture. Odom came up with a 
majority with 324,574 votes, while 

Dozierreceived 215,307. 

For the Commissioner of In- 
surance position, incumbent 
Sherman Bernard will face Don 
Williamson. Bernard came away 
with 151,038 votes, while 
Williamson got 72,761 . 

Jerry Fowler, an NSU graduate, 
will face Lynn Hair in the run- 
off for the Commissioner of 
Elections. Fowler, the son of the 
inclmbent voting commissioner, 
took 149,179 votes while Hair took 

In the Natchitoches area, for the 
31st District Senatorial race, in- 
cumbent Don Kelly with 10,482 
votes won over George B. Foshee, 
son of the former senator who Kelly 
beat in the last election, had 2,687. 

In the representative's race for the 
23rd District, incumbent Jimmy 
Long with 9452 votes whipped 
buwinessman and farmer Russell 
Cook , who garnered 4,113 votes. 

In the hotly contested sheriff's 
race, Norm Fletcher, who was the 
radio voice of the Northwestern 
Demons for 25 years, beat Chief 
Deputy Boyd Durr, who was backed 
by retiring Sheriff Sam James. 
Fletcher, who is head of the Civil 
Defense in Natchitoches, took 7,465 
votes as compared with 6,181 votes 
chalked up by Durr in complete but 
unofficial returns.

NSU Education gets $150,000 
to develop service programs 

The U.S. Office of Education has 
awarded a $150,000 grant to 
Northwestern for the development 
of new services and programs and 
for the improvement of opportuniti- 
es in higher education for NSU 

Dr. Otis Cox, director of in- 
stitutional research and sponsored 
programs for Northwestern, said 
the grant will provide for the 
development of a planning 
management and evaluation system 
to deal with a variety of problems, 
the development of a basic library 
skills unit within NSU's orientation 
program and general improvement 
in the university's student financial 
aid system. 

Cox, who is directing the project 
for NSU, said the federal funds 
were obtained through Title III of 
the Higher Education Act, a 
program which emphasizes 
strengthening developing in- 

Cox stated that the program to 
improve the student financial aid 
system includes the development of 
an "integrated set of computer 
programs which will provide a 
comprehensive capability of 


receiving, processing and managing 
the financial aid and loan programs 
of the university." 

He explained that improving the 
university's student financial aid 
system would result in increased 
efficiency in such areas as coun- 
seling of applicants, reduced 
paperwork, support for internal 
decision-making and complying 
with governmental regulations. 

The primary objective for the 
basic library skills unit program, 
said Cox, is to "establish an ef- 
fective pattern of library use in the 
students' college career. We want to 
ensure that each student will receive 
library instruction which will be 
immediately useful to him and to 
give him exercises which will 
reinforce this learning." 

A new one-hour course is being 
developed to enable students to 
establish rapport with librarians in 
order to encourage them to seek 
help when needed. 

Cox stated that the grant will 
enable Northwestern to "strengthen 
and improve its planning, 
management and evaluation 
capability in order to insure that 
limited resources are allocated in 

such a manner as to provide quality 
education to the community at the 
most efficient cost-benefit ratio." 

"This particular program," said 
Cox, "will give us an opportunity to 
develop management strategies to 
deal with problem situations, such 
as shifts in enrollment. It will also 
give us better personnel
